2002- Performing at the Angel Ball with David & Victoria Beckham

In 2002 Diane was invited by radio and TV presenter Susie Mathis to perform at the Angel Ball in Manchester, raising funds for the Francis House Hospice hosted by Kirsty Howard, an amazing girl who was given 3 years to live with a rare heart defect, but went on to live until the age of 20, and famously handed the torch to the Queen at the Commonwealth Games.

Unknown to Diane and all of the audience, David and Victoria Beckham secretly turned up to the event to join in the fundraising and watch the performance, and it was featured in all of the National press the following day.

In her honour, the Kirsty Club Charity is still being run today and continues to provide amazing support at the Francis House Hospice:
