Happy Hearts charity dinner aims to help children out of poverty

Helping 50 children begin the journey out of poverty in one evening is quite an ambition.

But businesswomen Sherie Booth, 53, of Bridge Street, Colnbrook, plans to do just that with the Happy Hearts charity dinner she has arranged at Windsor Racecourse on Friday, September 19.

She has even persuaded singer-songwriter Daniel Bedingfield to make an exclusive appearance.

Sherie, who is married to Mark with a 15-year-old daughter Bailey, has been a sponsor for the charity Compassion for 10 years.

The charity sponors chidren abroad who are living in poverty. She said: “The aim of the event is to have 50 children sponsored by the end of the evening so they can start their journey out of poverty."

During the event profiles will be presented of children that have been in the Compassion programme for longer than nine months and are longing to build a relationship with a family in the UK.

Sherie said: “Compassion is a charity very close to my heart. The reward as a sponsor to see these children grow up and make something of themselves from very little is so humbling.” 

Tickets for the event are £40 - available from Sherie, info@msbsaveu.co.uk or via Eventbrite http://happyheartscharitydinner.wordpress.com
