Fresh from the launch of the new series of The Apprentice on BBC One on Tuesday, Lord Sugar’s trusted advisors Nick Hewer and Margaret Mountford are heading to Leeds.

The duo will be in Leeds on November 6 to speak at the Make a Dream annual gala dinner at Leeds United Conference Centre.

Nick Hewer is familiar to viewers as the master of the withering putdown. He also hosts Channel 4’s popular daytime quiz Countdown. He will speak at the charity’s dinner alongside former Apprentice colleague Dr Margaret Mountford.

And if that’s not enough, the evening will also include a performance from comic impressionist Alistair McGowan.

Stuart Levin, charity chairman and organiser of the annual Make a Dream gala dinner, said: “We have a fantastic evening lined up on 6 November and we are delighted to welcome Nick and Margaret as special guests, and to hear some anecdotes from their time on The Apprentice.

“Last year, at our 20th anniversary gala dinner we raised £65,000. We hope to raise even more this year to support the region’s sick children and their families.”

Make a Dream is a charity that makes dreams come true for Yorkshire’s sick and terminally ill children.

The gala dinner offers excellent value with a table of 10 costing just £595 (£59.50 per person). Two tables of 10 can be purchased for £1,000.
