On Monday 30th April, 170 supporters of North London Cares and our sister charity, South London Cares, came together for our second fundraising dinner.
The stunning OXO2 was the setting for our evening, during which we celebrated the wonderful friendships formed across our patch – and raised money to ensure that more company, conversation and companionship can be shared during the summer months.
There was a fundraising game to help break the ice, and an auction of unique prizes.
And we were joined by David McDonough OBE, who we were proud to announce as our first Cares Family Patron.
But the highlight of the evening was when Frances, Michael, Eustelle, Peter, Daphne, Lauren, Adam and George performed an extract from Willy Russell's 'Our Day Out.' They brought their house down with their school children characters!
The money raised will help fund over 100 Social Clubs across Camden, Islington, Southwark and Lambeth this summer.
We're so grateful to everyone who came and supported North London Cares and South London Cares. And huge thanks must go to Kier, Knight Frank and Fried Frank who sponsored the evening – and our friend Duncan who took the beautiful photos, which can be seen here.
We hope to see you next year!
If you're inspired to help fund a Social Club, head to our 'Donate' page. Just £20 can make a huge difference.
