English actress Sadie Frost might not be the first person you think of when you think “Bingo.” But the stunning actress and designer, who has designed everything from kitchens to gorgeous clothing for her fashion label Frost French, caused quite a stir by attending The Groucho’s bingo night in glamorous style.
Daubing for The Hepatitis C Trust
Let’s face it: Bingo is a game commonly associated with older generations. But bit by bit, the game is becoming more fashionable, more youthful, and dare we say – more fun! Sadie Frost proved it by appearing at a Bingo fundraiser for The Hepatitis C Trust by wearing a curve-skimming black satin dress trimmed in daring black lace. Design collaborator Jemima French (also of FrostFrench) was also on hand for the occasion.
Sadie, along with other big names such as Robbie Williams and Boy George, is one of the trust’s best-known patrons. She was in high spirits as she participated in the games and took part in a charity auction; numbers were called by fabled DJ Jodie Harsh, who was resplendent in sequins.
The Hepatitis C Trust is a patient-run and patient-led charity based in the UK, and is dedicated to providing information, support, and representation for those who are affected by the Hepatitis C virus. The Bingo gala and charity auction, which featured celebrity artwork and more, raised well over £17,000 for the charity. Supporters are thrilled at the outcome, and winners of course, are beyond thrilled with the fantastic prizes they won over the course of the evening.
With stars lining up to help raise money for charity, fun community bingo nights, and many more opportunities to win locally as well as abroad, bingo is still going strong. While it is a game all ages can enjoy, it certainly isn’t ready to be retired anytime soon.
