Lessons for Life Gala Dinner
5th December 2018
We celebrated the eleventh annual Lessons for Life Gala Dinner in the wonderful setting of The Artillery Gardens at the HAC. Our amazing guests helped us raise over £800,000 towards our work in Sub-Saharan Africa.
The gala dinner was an excellent opportunity to gather our friends and supporters, including key stakeholders from Liberty Global as well as key members of the media, consultancy, banking and legal sectors. This year we were joined by over 400 guests for a fantastic evening hosted by our Co-Chairmen Andrea Salvato and Manuel Kohnstamm, as well as a teacher we supported, Annet Kayesu. She gave a tremendous speech and spoke about how much we supported her to return to education and supported her mother to start her own Ghee making business.
Guests heard about Lessons for Life's work over the past 10 years, check out our 10 year highlight video here.
We are really proud of our achievements, and delighted that we could share them with the people who make that possible, our supporters. We are hugely grateful to all those who supported the event – from companies who took tables to those who donated and bid for auction prizes; the night would not have been possible without you. Thank you.
