Ms Cherie Lunghi
Cherie Lunghi is an English film, television and theatre actor, well known to British audiences for her starring roles in many TV dramas. Her international fame stems from her role as Guinevere in the 1981 film Excalibur. Her long list of screen, stage and TV credits include football manageress Gabriella Benson in the 1990s television series The Manageress and a series of adverts for Kenco coffee. She also competed in the 2008 series of Strictly Come Dancing. Cherie has been an ambassador for Nacoa since speaking at the Vintners’ Company fundraising dinner in 2007 and presenting the David Stafford Memorial Lecture in 2013.
“I support Nacoa because I know childhood is not easy for children when their lives are taken over by their parent’s drink problem. Imagine coming home from school and not knowing what you’ll find and having no friends because you can’t bring them home. My message to them is there is hope and help from people at Nacoa.”
