Fashion jewellery brand Carat* partnered with TV presenter Melanie Sykes to host a charity event in aid of iPAN (International pre-Autistic Network).

The event took place at Carat* London’s recently refurbished flagship Covent Garden boutique on Tuesday July 12.

Sykes’ fellow TV presenters Melinda Messenger and Scarlette Douglas attended the event alongside celebrity hair and make-up stylist Gary Cockerill, his TV personality husband Phil Turner.


Representing the cause was autism ambassador and chairperson for Autism UK Anna Kennedy OBE.

Guests enjoyed champagne and macarons from Laduree, whilst browsing the latest collection. Carat* donated 30% of all the evening’s sales to iPAN.

Additionally, guests were invited to buy a key for a minimum donation of £10 for a chance to open a box, which housed a jewellery set. One winner walked away with a Carat* necklace and matching drop earrings from the brand’s Cocktails collection.
