Our St Andrews Dinner on Thursday 28th November was a great success. This year we were delighted to welcome more guests than ever all helping to create an amazing atmosphere in the impressive dining room at the Barber-Surgeons’ Hall.
Guests were welcomed by Guest of Honor, Vice President Peter Lewis Crown MBE. They enjoyed a drinks reception, close up magic and were piped into dinner in the grand dining room. The Auction, Raffle and Tables for Two draw contributed to the fun as well as the financial success of the evening, this year we had amazing prizes ranging from a bungee jump to a night at the opera!
We are delighted to inform you that the evening raised over £15, 000, an amazing amount that will go a long way towards helping us run our new Early Help service at Rainbows, a vital service for families of children with disabilities and special educational needs.
The Westminster Society is calling for health equality for people with learning disabilities to ensure they have access to regular Covid-19 testing, and that vaccines are made available on an equitable basis alongside people living in elderly and nursing care facilities.
