Lynne Featherstone MP last week opened a charity ice skating Gala at Alexandra Palace Ice Rink.
The Gala was arranged by Alexandra Palace Amateur Ice Skating Club, in aid of Children in Need and the Alexandra Wylie Tower Foundation – which funds work with under-privileged children in memory of a local skater who tragically died nearly two years ago.
The Liberal Democrat MP for Hornsey and Wood Green gave a speech about the importance of volunteering, and how all young people should aspire to be the best they can be. The opening speech was followed by musical and skating performances, including Gangnam Style on ice!
After the event, APAISC Events Secretary Cheryl Juckes said:
“I would like to thank Lynne very much for so generously donating her time to us. Having an MP there makes any night special but having one who so obviously cares and is interested in everyone she meets makes a world of difference.
“The children found Lynne’s speech very inspiring and the adults who had given their time were delighted to hear their contributions acknowledged.”
Lynne Featherstone MP commented:
“It was an absolute honour to open the Gala, which was so well organised and executed. The performances were inspiring and I was so impressed with the thought and effort behind the event.
“On top of that, it was all in aid of two very good causes. I wish Cheryl, the team and the performers all the best of luck for the future.”
