Girl band plays in front of a home crowd to raise funds for dental charity
Liverpool's favourite girl band, Atomic Kitten, recently sang at a charity ball organised by Liverpool Dental Spa.
Owners of the award-winning practice, Marius and Debbie McGovern, organised the star-studded charity ball recently at Liverpool’s Hilton Hotel to raise funds to carry out an expedition with the Dental Mavericks charity to the Rif Mountains in North Africa to treat more than 500 children with chronic dental problems.
The glitzy event was organised by them along with Julie Perry Events – and Atomic Kitten were there to play in front of a home crowd.
The girls, who last performed in the city 13 years ago, wowed 200 guests with three of their biggest hits, The Tide is High, Whole Again and Right Now.
Radio City’s Simon Ross hosted the event and entertainment also included sets from last year’s X-Factor finalist Chris Maloney and boy-band Reconnected.
Other celebrities showing their support included Alex Gerrard, Nicola Carragher, Shauna Muamba, Chantelle Tagoe, Jennifer Metcalfe and Liverpool goalkeeper Brad Jones.
Kerry Katona said: ‘It was absolutely fantastic playing in front of a home crowd again as a "Kitten” and doing it for such a worthwhile cause made it all the more special.’
Marius McGovern, clinical director of the Liverpool Dental Spa, said: ‘The event has raised over £20,000 tonight to enable us to help many children who are suffering needlessly. We are very grateful to everyone who has supported us, especially Atomic Kitten, Chris Maloney and our many friends and colleagues who have come along tonight.’
