Films have the power to bring people together which is why we’re super excited about our movie-themed fundraiser on 18th December at the London Hilton Tower Bridge Hotel.

All proceeds from the event help us to support young Londoners, aged 4 – 24 years, by improving access, awareness, abilities and aspirations so that they are better placed to take advantage of the outstanding opportunities that London has to offer.
