This fundraiser was to mark the 1000th day since Madeleine's abduction disappearance and to put some much needed cash into the limited company's coffers with half of the proceeds going to the McCanns and the remaining half being split between Missing People and an EU equivalent charity. The McCann's fund is not a charity but a limited company, nevertheless there was, how shall I say, something symbiotic.

This is David Steel, the man who failed to have Cyril Smith investigated and was instrumental in getting him a knighthood. Would I want to stand next to him if my child had been 'taken by a paedophile'? It's obviously a rhetorical question.

The Kensington Gardens bash involved an auction. Stobo Castle also did a fundraiser with an auction.
I remember the Richard Branson's exclusive Kensington Roof Gardens funtion and what a memorable damp squib occasion that was - a star-studded bash (so sayeth the UK tabloids) that managed to rustle-up such names as Gloria Hunniford,  Fiona Bruce,  Peter Bowles and the WOW factor - none other than  Lord David Steel.  Just look at proud Gerald standing before the camera, again looking like a David Walliams tribute act..

Gerry McCann, Martin Houghton-Brown, Chief Executive Missing People, Kate McCann and Francis Herbert, Secretary General, Missing Children Europe at a Madeleine McCann fundraiser....

I think that was about the extent of the press coverage.  It must have been a total non-event, otherwise it would have been the talking point of the year.
Are those coins thrown at their feet, or gobs of chewing gum?
