Memories of Vikki OrviceA star-studded gathering of the good and the great from sport and the media gathered at Lord's on November 13 to honour the legacy of Vikki Orvice and raise a six figure sum for the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.
Over £103,000 was raised among an audience of 400 people who turned up to pay tribute to Vikki, who passed away last February. It was an emotional and moving evening, with tears and laughter in equal measure, superbly hosted by Jacqui Oatley, Vikki's friend and FWA committee member.
Vikki Orvice fundraising dinner
A gift to you from our birthday girl.
The FWA’s first female vice-chair, Vikki Orvice, should have celebrated her 57th birthday on Friday.
Sadly we can’t mark the occasion with Vikki this year as she passed away in February. Instead we will celebrate her life with a fundraising dinner on Wednesday (13th) for the The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.
Vikki Orvice celebration night at Lord’sJust a reminder that there are still a few tickets remaining for the gala night at Lord's on November 13 to celebrate the life of our dear departed colleague Vikki Orvice.
Vikki sadly died of cancer in February after several years of treatment. We plan to spend the evening remembering the highlights of Vikki’s working life as a trailblazing sports journalist, while raising vital funds for the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, via auction and raffle. Many fantastic prizes have already been pledged, and there will be spectacular live music and entertainment, as well as superb food and drinks.
