John Caudwell, the billionaire philanthropist who founded the UK charity Caudwell Children, is set to hold a private benefit this week for 200 close friends and associates to raise money to help sick and disabled children in the UK.

Guests at the exclusive dinner will enjoy a glamorous six course taster menu in the grandiose surroundings of Banqueting House in Whitehall, followed by intimate performances from two of the UK’s greatest recording artists, Robbie Williams and Robin Gibb.

The evening’s auction is expected to raise thousands of pounds for the charity, Caudwell Children, who provide support for sick and disabled children living in the UK.

Trudi Beswick, Caudwell Children Chief Executive, said: “Our larger Butterfly Ball event has been moved to September to make way for this special dinner. John wanted an opportunity to share his passion for the charity with a small audience of his friends and associates.”

Robbie Williams, who is an ambassador for the Stoke-based charity, and pop-legend Robin Gibb agreed to perform for the small audience for free in support of the charity.

The event takes place on Thursday 12th May at Banqueting House in Whitehall, London.
