Our biannual Fundraising Dinner was held last night at the Clothworkers Hall in London. Sponsored by Hampdens the evening was opened by our new Chairman of Trustees Gavin Bacon who managed to get the 170 assembled guests seated at their tables in good time.
We were very fortunate to have Lindsay Boswell the CEO of FareShare in attendance and he gave a speech on the role of FareShare and the effect of good meals on people they help.
The evening raised about £215,000 enough money to allow us to produce enough meals to pass the 500,000 meal mark in the coming year. Huge thanks to all those who donated prizes and bid for them and to Lord Dalmeny from Sotherby’s who conducted a most entertaining auction.
