Though we enjoy close partnerships with the police, government and other charities, the burden falls on PACT to get our vital projects off the ground. To help us achieve our goals, we hosted a fund-raising dinner at the beautiful Stationers’ Hall.
The event was a huge success. Despite its being a Friday evening and the start of the May Bank Holiday weekend, 86 guests attended the dinner. We raised overall £15,000 from ticket sales, the silent auction and individual donations. We are most grateful to the then Master of the Stationers’ Company, Tom Hempenstall, to PACT’s Fundraising Committee, and, of course, to all our guests for their generous support.
