David Cameron could hardly have done more to highlight the role of the Journalists’ Charity when he made a guest appearance at the annual reception: it was, said the Prime Minister, a brilliant example of the Big Society at work. He delivered his tribute after being welcomed by the Ambassador of Ireland, Mr Bobby McDonagh, who was the generous host once again for the charity’s most popular get together held in London on Wednesday 3 November.
