Lasting Life – The Simon MacCorkindale Legacy
I was recently very privileged to have been invited to cover a fabulous star studed event at The Dorchester Hotel in London. The event was in aid of the wonderful Lasting Life the Simon MacCorkindale Legacy. I was lucky enough to photograph the Launch Event earlier in 2016 and it was lovely to see again the legacy founder Susan George, former Hollywood actress and devoted wife to Simon.
The theme of the evening “Love Letters” was the brilliant idea of Susan and it involved some of the UK’s finest actor and actresses performing moving pieces all geared around love letters. For me the most emotional letter read out during the evening was by Tristan Gemmill, who used the words of ww1 soldier to his darling wife. Sadly the soldier was killed soon after.
The list of amazing performers was indeed endless and no doubt you will recognise a number of fine performers from the images below. I know from Susan that the evening was a huge success and a wonderful amount was raised, which I understand will go towards the fabulous work of RAFT a charity which is dedicated to the quality of health care.
The next stop for the legacy is an event to be held in the USA, no doubt it will be a fantastic event and fingers crossed I get to take more pictures. To find out more about LASTING LIFE follow the links provided and do support Susan and Simon’s legacy.
