We are pleased to report that the Chelsea Pitch Owners fundraising night held at Stamford Bridge to celebrate the 2012 Champions League triumph was a great success. Star guest Frank Lampard surprised and delighted the near sell-out audience by arriving with a special guest: the recently-won Europa League trophy.
Host for the evening Jason Cundy did a fine job of quizzing Chelsea's skipper on that famous night in Munich, accompanied by video replays. The midfielder provided fascinating insights into the key moments of the Champions League campaign - it was a privilege to hear his shared memories. Many thanks to him.
Another special guest, Bobby Tambling, was delighted to chat with fans, pose for photos and sign autographs.
We are still collating figures but we expect funds raised from auctioned items and other things to raise a healthy addition to company funds. We also sold or had pledges for 140 CPO shares on the night.
Thank you very much to everyone who attended and helped make the evening such a memorable and successful one. Watch this space for future events.
