Press release: Stars of TOWIE shimmer at Sugar Hut’s Samaritans night

- For immediate release -

Stars of The Only Way is Essex were out in force last night, showing their support for cast members Billi Mucklow, Cara Kilbey, and Mick Norcross who were holding a charity fundraiser at Sugar Hut night club.

Fellow TOWIE star and owner of Sugar Hut, Mick Norcross, generously donated all the ticket sales from last night to Samaritans, raising an impressive £3,343.00 for the charity.

Other celebrities who came down to the glamorous event included Georgia Salpa, Lydia Bright, Lucy Mecklenburgh, Mario Falcone and Kirk Norcross. Stars happily posed for photographs with fans, many of which had travelled some distance as far as Leeds and Manchester to support the TOWIE charity night.

As part of the fundraiser, four lucky winners of a charity auction were treated to a VIP evening with Billi and Cara.The glamorous prize included dinner with the girls at Mason’s restaurant and a place at Mick’s VIP table at the club.

Mick said: “It was a great evening - loads of famous faces came down as well as friends, family and TOWIE fans. We raised a heap of money which will be put in Billi and Cara’s pot for Samaritans.”

Stephen Wilkie, Samaritans’ Community Fundraising Manager said: ”Huge thanks to Mick, Billi and Cara for their efforts. Events like this not only raise vital funds to help Samaritans, they help spread awareness about our service. We wish the girls the best of luck with their marathon and look forward to cheering them on!”

Aiming to raise an enormous £10,000 for Samaritans, Billi and Cara will be running the Virgin London Marathon for the charity on Sunday 22 April.
