A fantastic night at our Autumn Funder!
Nearly a week later and our heads are still spinning from our wonderful Autumn Funder last Thursday evening*. Our second virtual event raised a record breaking £60,000 (and counting!) for the three exceptional charities that pitched – A Partner in Education supporting Rwandan children to remain in education throughout Covid-19, The Armitage Foundation working to ensure the doctors of tomorrow represent the country of today and ACCORD addressing the economic and social marginalisation of tribal peoples in southern India.
Thank you to everyone who took part and contributed to the event’s success – over 120 of you! – and for anyone who missed it, you can watch it here (feel free to fast forward to the all important pitches, APIE at 07:55, Armitage Foundation at 22:10 and ACCORD at 35:15 ). And if you’d like to pledge to any of the projects, it’s not too late. Please just drop us a line. We’d love to hear from you!
Thanks very much to Octopus who were to have hosted the event but who instead generously supported the charities. We really value your flexibility and steadfast support during these difficult times.
We have lots of events with partners between now and Christmas and you can find those here, and we hope very much to see you at our Festive Funder on 1st December at 5:30pm. Find details of all upcoming events here.
