On March 19th you are invited to come and meet us and hear for yourself from three of our most inspiring charities we support. Each will pitch at this friendly ‘dragon’s den’ arranged in partnership with The Funding Network. Afterwards, you’ll be invited to give as much as you can, in a live crowd funder. Great fun, great fundraising!

March 19th, Hotel Cafe Royal, Regent Street, London. 6-8pm

Alcohol Education Trust – provide proven, effective materials for young teenagers to delay the onset of alcohol consumption. Evidence based research suggests that regular drinking pre-15 years old can reduce attainment by 20 points, equivalent to an A* pupil getting C grade at GSCE. In London, where a high proportion of students have English as a second language and schools have a high number of special educational needs, new visual rich learning materials will be provided to ensure the most vulnerable youngsters reach their true potential.





London Youth Choir – will enable 20 most deprived children aged 7-11 to have fully expensed/accompanied year-long, weekly participation at their prestigious musical community, to allow their natural performance talents to flourish. LYC will select children from their roadshows and will facilitate families to attend or perform at the highest level. Life changing and aspirational!




Southside Young Leaders Academy – this established charity run by Joshua works with young black boys at risk of exclusion in Lambeth and Southwark. Over a three year period, they work with youngsters as young as 8 through the transition to secondary school using mentoring, challenges and positive role models. Their accredited programme allows more young black males to stay on track and stay out of trouble.

To book yourself a place and enjoy the fun and thrill that only spending a lot of money making a difference can bring, buy a ticket now to the event here
