FUNDRAISING AND COCKTAIL EVENT AT SOHO HOUSE BASEMENT IN LONDON A HUGE SUCCESS!
A great evening reception was held on 2nd November at the Soho House Basement in London. We hope those who attended enjoyed it as much as we did. Thank you so much to all those (120 people) who joined us and braved the vagaries of the London tube system on strike day and hope you all got home safely.
Chris Jackson has posted a number of photographs from the evening on http://www.gettyimages.co.uk/Search/Search.aspx?contractUrl=2&language=en-GB&family=editorial&p=chris%20jackson%20&assetType=image#, so please take a look.
The main aim of the evening was raising awareness of BPCT and our work- but we were delighted to also have raised £4,000 from the event.
