UWS Annual Gala Dinner 2016

Last month, we held our third Annual Gala Dinner, returning for a second year to the fabulous setting of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. With almost three hundred guests, the event was our biggest to date, and provided a wonderful opportunity to celebrate our achievements and share our ambitions for 2017 and beyond.

Highlights of the evening included a performance by singer and pianist Joe Stilgoe, as well as silent and live auctions featuring prizes from a Jenny Packham dress to holidays in Thailand, Sri Lanka, Morocco and more. Not only was a great time had by all, but thanks to the attendees’ generous pledges and competitive bidding, we raised a staggering £180,000! This money will go a long way as we work towards reaching even more out of school children in 2017. Many thanks to all those who attended and made the event such a success!
