This fundraiser was to mark the 1000th day since Madeleine's

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.
damp squiboccasion 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..

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.
