First Ever Haberdashers' Charities' Networking Evening

Last Thursday evening we were delighted to welcome both our members and our charity representatives to Haberdashers Hall for our first ever charity engagement event.

Members spent the evening learning about the affirming role our charities play in affecting change in the communities they serve, as well as the support we can give them in this area as a Funder Plus partner.

Over the course of the night, members heard from each of our charities (in a 1 minute elevator pitch!), and were able to offer their time and talent in a practical volunteering capacity (from one off interventions to ongoing input) to help them elevate their work within our schools and church communities.

The evening challenged the Company’s understanding of the funding sector and drew us all closer to those working on the ground in the social mobility space, helping members to understand the challenges facing charities in today’s context and see where the opportunities lie to support, strengthen and grow our charity partners.

We would like to warmly thank all who joined us for a challenging and informative night!
