On the 4th of February we held our Winter Party, with an auction run by the actor and comedian David Schneider. The prizes included a tour around Channel 4 by Jon Snow, a tour of the Aston Martin factory and acting lessons from Juliet Stevenson. It was a great evening and together with the auction, it was a hugely successful fundraiser. We raised over £40,000 for our charities, The Islington Centre for Refugees, Safe Passage and Help Refugees.
The party was thoroughly enjoyable with a delicious three course meal, followed by people getting into the swing of things and showing off some great dance moves! The music was provided by a live performance from The Dung Beetles.
The evening was made extra special by a guest appearance from Ruby Wax, who joined Juliet Stevenson on the stage for a thoroughly entertaining Q&A. We couldn't have done it without your support to make the event such a success. Thank you to everyone who donated the amazing prizes, the Highgate Golf Club and all those who attended the evening and generously bid on the auction online and in the evening.
