Matt Turner, Marcella Whittingdale and Chestnut Tree House…why it’s got to be Grease lightning!

Press Release
June 27, 2017

The Midsummer Ball at the Hilton Brighton Metropole saw businesses from across the South East come together for a very special summer night; raising £100k for charity. The night saw The Creative Group’s very own Matt Turner taking on the role of Danny Zuko, performing a Grease medley with Marcella Whittingdale.

Competing with several other acts, Matt and Marcella raised over £1,800 for Chestnut Tree House. The fantastic event was in partnership with; Chestnut Tree House, a children’s hospice for young people with life-shortening conditions, the DM Thomas Foundation for Young People, a charity dedicated to helping disadvantaged and vulnerable young people transform their lives, as well as Chailey Heritage Foundation, The Starr Trust and Action Medical Research for Children.

 Matt, CEO of The Creative Group, said: “Thank you to all the people who sponsored us, it means a lot. £100,000 is an astounding amount to have raised and I’m very honoured to have been involved. I look back on the day now and it feels quite surreal. A huge amount of preparation went into the event and the results show that the hard work from everyone involved really paid off.”
