“YOU’RE ONLY 38 ONCE”AN EVENING WITH SEVA NOVGORODSEV IN AID OF GIFT OF LIFE

September 20th 2015, London. Seva Novgorodsev‘s charity evening raised almost £2000 for the Gift of Life foundation. Thanks to the aid of Jean Jacques Soho, all donations will be used to pay for surgery for 12-year-old Angelina from Volgodonsk. She is suffering from a malign tumour in her left tibia. Russian doctors could not be certain that Angelina would be able to keep her leg, and so they decided to request help from Dr Ingo Melcher, a renowned surgical oncologist from Germany.

The evening was hosted by the recently opened Jean Jacques Soho restaurant, with over 50 guests in attendance. The event was introduced by the famous actress Dina Korzun, co-founder of the Gift of Life and Podari Zhizn foundations.

The legendary radio host Seva Novgorodsev has concluded his 38-year career at the BBC, and is ready to begin a new chapter in the story of his life. Seva was among the first expatriates to support the Gift of Life charity from the very day it opened in the UK nearly five years ago. On his last evening in London, he decided to not only spend time with his friends, but also to help children in need.
