2011 fund-raising dinner

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office was the venue for the 2011 fund-raising dinner. 250 guests dined in style in the sumptuous surroundings of the Durbar Court.

Once again, the event was sponsored by Kroll. Guest speaker, BBC correspondent Ben Brown, regaled guests with his experiences of reporting from many trouble spots around the world. Ben’s attendance at the dinner was sponsored by Shell. Special thanks to Ben for adding a personal tour of the BBC newsroom to the list of items that were auctioned at the end of the dinner. Other corporate supporters of the dinner included: Forum Partners, Clyde & Co, Fried Frank, Arab Cargo Company, KPMG, Speechly Bircham, Allen & Overy, Commerzbank, Integrity and The League of Arab States. The Trust extends its heartfelt thanks to everyone who attended the dinner and helped to raise more than £40,000. All of this money will be used to support our education projects in the Palestinian Territories.
