Corrie stars join Mad Men charity ball

Keith Duffy, who played Coronation Street's Ciaran McCarthy,  is hosting a Mad Men themed Ball at the Hilton, in aid of Manchester-based charity, the Hearts and Minds Challenge. Keith's co-hosts will be Melanie Sykes and Manchester United's Paul Scholes. The charity supports families touched by autism, and the hosts all have autistic children, so it’s a cause close to their hearts. 

The Ball will take place at Manchester’s Hilton Hotel on 25th November. The hosts – who all have autistic children – will be joined by stars from Coronation Street and the London 2012 Paralympic Games, to help raise £1 million to fund a new school in Manchester for autistic children.

Tickets are selling out fast, but there are still a small number of tables available at the ball. The Ball will feature entertainment from Atomic Kitten star, Natasha Hamilton, and well-known crooner Cole Page. There will also be a three course meal and the chance to bag some amazing items in the charity auction.  

Keith Duffy, said: “I want to do something different to getting dressed up in a suit and dicky bow. I love the idea of a Mad Men theme and Mel is excited about putting her hair up in a beehive. Adults love a fancy dress theme and this will be a night to remember.”

The Hearts and Minds Challenge aims to raise the quality of life for individuals and their families affected by autism, by ensuring the provision of the highest standards in education, care and support. The charity is currently welcoming anyone interested in supporting the ball or taking a table at the event. For more information, please visit: http://www.heartsandmindschallenge.org/

Fancy the idea of a Mad Men / Coronation Street crossver? Then you'll love this.
