Rex appeal helps Norwood

October 10, 2008

Opinionated Big Brother contestant Rex Newmark relayed some positive views on Norwood when he was one of 420 guests at a "Cocktails in the City" fundraiser at the Barbican Rooftop Conservatory.

"This is the first thing I've done since leaving the Big Brother House," the 24-year-old confided. "Tonight is the only time I've said, ‘I want to be doing this', and it makes me very proud to be supporting a Jewish charity."

The event was staged by Young Norwood and raised £14,000 for the charity's welfare activities.
