Anthony Drewe, one half of Honk! and Mary Poppins writing duo Stiles and Drewe, will at the end of October embark on a gruelling trek through the Himalayas to raise much needed funds for the charity (you can donate at his JustGiving page). And for the same charity, he and Elliot Davis (who will also be trekking) put on Sunday night’s fund-raising concert.
And it was a superb, unique evening that it was an intense privilege to attend.
