Robbie Williams’ father Peter stood up and sang at Puccini’s in Swinton, Manchester during their annual charity night at the famous Italian restaurant.
Over 70 guests, including former Manchester United players from the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s, were entertained by Restaurateur Michele Pucci whose generous donation of the evening for the last ten years has raised over £300k.
This year’s proceeds of 30k will be shared between Destination Florida who provide holidays to Disneyland for children who are living with life shortening illnesses, and Muscular Dystrophy UK.
Destination Florida Office and Events Manager Ben Morrison said:
“This is a stunning gesture by Michele and is supported by people from all over the UK.
Every £1 we have been given will help pay towards our annual trip to Florida, when we take 75 seriously ill children.”
At least 12 of those children each year are living with muscular dystrophy conditions so there was terrific synergy last night with Muscular Dystrophy UK.
Nura Makki, Head of Corporate Partnerships said:
“We are truly grateful to Mr Pucci and his fantastic team. We had a wonderful evening and we would also like to thank Peter Williams for bringing along a picture signed by his son Robbie Williams from his recent Vegas residency.”
