The 2023 Sureserve Foundation fundraising dinner
On Thursday 5 October 2023 the Sureserve Foundation welcomed sponsors and supporters at the stunning Merchant Taylors' Hall, in London, to celebrate an evening of fundraising and fun.
For all those in attendance the evening was an opportunity to understand more about the Foundation's goals and objectives. With so many partners and supporters engaged with the very real issue of fuel poverty in the UK, the commitment to help was visible and clear.
The evening included an introduction to the Foundation's work from John Charlton, Chair of the Foundation, and continued with a three course meal, silent auction and raffle, with a wide variety of spectacular lots being snatched up by enthusiastic guests. We are very grateful to all those supporters who donated prizes for the evening.
Guest speaker Simon Francis, Coordinator of the End Fuel Poverty Coalition, discussed a range of topics relating to fuel poverty, including associated health problems, underlying problems and potential solutions for the future.
The evening was a great success and we managed to raise over £52,000, all of which will go to supporting organisations tackling fuel poverty in 2023 and 2024, to working with housing associations and local authorities to directly support them in lessening the burden of fuel poverty for their residents this winter, and to sharing and promoting energy efficiency advice and guidance with an ever increasing number of people in desperate need of assistance.
‘It is important that we all recognise our part in creating the change so essential for a future where the unjust disparity for those unable to heat and power their homes no longer exists.’
With thanks to our sponsors
