Action for Children Ladies Lunch
When Methodist minister Thomas Bowman Stephenson saw children living rough under the arches of Waterloo station in London, he decided he had to act. And his first action was to listen.
He paid children the respect of hearing their stories, before working out the most practical way to help. A century and a half later, the spirit of our founder remains our inspiration. Their mission is to do what’s right, do what’s needed, and do what works for children.
Through their fund raising events and awareness, SFL Group have been working with Action for Children for many years on their Reading Event Byte Night – Byte Night is the UK’s largest national corporate sleepout event, with individuals and teams sleeping out to raise vital funds to prevent youth homelessness. This allow Action for Children to continue to help thousands of young people to build better lives by providing essential support, accommodation, education and training.
This weeks Ladies Lunch event which saw Gaby Roslin encourage a room of 300 women to part with what totalled over £100,000 of donations! It was great to be able to use what we do every day to help change the lives of so many Children and Young people across the UK!
