I love Tony "Fordy" Ford. What a guy. He's now brought over masseuse to the stars, Bongo Man, who's left the beaches of Barbados behind and arrived in the North West to bring a little Barbados sunshine into the lives of those with life-threatening illness.
Bongo Man, who has worked on the beach at the Caribbean island’s most exclusive resort – Sandy Lane – for 17 years, is a guest of Fordy - entrepreneur and a top man who does loads for charity.
During his stay, Bongo Man will visit local hospices including St Ann’s Hospice where he will meet with staff and day-care patients and learn more about the specialist massage the hospice provides.
He will also be putting his services up for auction at a number of events to help raise money for charity, including the annual St Ann’s Hospice Ladies Fashion Lunch on October 2, and the EN Magazine Entrepreneur of the Year Awards (my kind of dinner).
