Charity Guest of Honour Tessa Peake-Jones has helped national charity Action For Kids raise £46,000 at the Association of Corporate Treasurers’ Annual Dinner.
Tessa, famous for her role as Raquel in television comedy series Only Fools and Horses, talked about the charity’s work to over 1,200 finance professionals from FTSE 100 and 250 companies. Pledges made at the Dinner will help support disabled children and young people across the UK through the provision of mobility aids, Work Related Learning and family support services.
Tessa said: “As a mother of two children I recognise how important it is to give them every opportunity I can in life, and that’s why this funding is so important.”
