Annual Fundraising Dinner – Friday 20th April 2018

 

Thank you to everyone who joined us on Friday 20th April 2018 at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower for a wonderful evening, where we raised around £127,000.

We heard inspiring speeches from Farah Nabulsi, filmmaker, who draws attention to the on-going injustices faced by Palestinians through her films, and Nick Maynard, a surgeon who frequently teaches in Gaza.

We were graced with delightful performances by Syrian singer Omran Zain accompanied on the oud by Basel Saleh, Khaled Al-Bashir, on the oud, and Hassan Rahhal, on the qanoun and singer Imogen Halsey accompanied on the piano by Harry Style.

Major thanks to the businesses and individuals, like Manchester United FC, who supported our fundraising efforts by donating items towards our silent auction and raffle.  See below for the full list:
