Friendship Works and we aren’t the only ones who think so. Check out the Friendship Works hall of fame to see our supporters in action…
Every year, Friendship Works runs a number of themed events to raise funds. Last year’s was a Christmas celebration of childhood, an evening with the stars at the Almeida Theatre in Islington.
Guests sipped Courvoisier champagne cocktails to the sound of music from the glamour-filled forties, before retiring to the auditorium to watch the show. Sir Ian McKellan, Richard Stilgoe, Tim Pigott-Smith and Dan Stevens were just some of the performers who shared their experiences of mentoring and childhood with the audience, and Kevin Spacey made a special appearance in a film he had made for the event to show how Friendship Works.
A fun-filled three-course dinner followed the show, with a fast and furious auction hosted by Jon Snow.
The star-studded evening raised £60,000 for Friendship Works, which will go to provide essential support to vulnerable children across London. This year’s event is currently being planned and promises to be even more spectacular.
