The inaugural Joint Security Associations Annual Fundraising Dinner will be held on Tuesday 30 September 2014 at the Grange City Hotel, a spectacular five star venue which overlooks the Tower of London.
This will be a prestigious Black Tie event, and will allow those attending the perfect opportunity to network with colleagues, entertain guests or simply enjoy a relaxed atmosphere while at the same time helping to support two very worthy charities.
The ticket price of £100 includes an exquisite three-course dinner menu and one free entry into the £20 ticketed prize raffle.
This year, the guest speaker will be Lord Carlile of Berriew CBE QC (President of The Security Institute).
The event will begin with a welcome reception at 6.30 pm followed by the dinner which will conclude at 11.00 pm, with a cash bar in operation both during and after.
Security associations and their nominated charities
The security associations involved (including The City Of London Crime Prevention Association, The Security Institute, ASIS International, the International Professional Security Association and ADS Group) are hoping to raise in excess of £20,000 which will be split equally between the two charities – the St Giles Trust and PTSD Resolution.
St Giles Trust aims to help break the cycle of prison, crime and disadvantage, creating safer communities by supporting people to help them change their lives. The charity offers a range of services which have helped over 16,000 clients overcome any barriers which might be holding them back from moving forward. Ultimately, it equips people with skills to help them live independent lives.
PTSD Resolution is a charity that offers a unique service counselling to the UK Armed Forces, TA and Regular Reserves (including their dependants) to relieve mental health problems resulting from Military Service and the traumas that they have faced.
The PTSD Resolution Outreach Programme has over 200 counsellors trained in trauma-focused cognitive behavioural therapy and provides a valuable contact point for anyone requiring counselling, complimentary to the work of the other armed forces charities.
Unique and exciting initiative
Don Randall – chairman of the organising committee and the City of London Crime Prevention Association – explained: “I’m honoured to be part of this fundraising project which has brought together professionals from the various security associations in the UK and will deliver what I hope will be an annual event on everyone’s calendar for many years to come.”
Emma Shaw, chairman of The Security Institute, added: “This event provides a perfect opportunity for the security profession to work together to raise substantial funds for two extremely worthwhile charities closely associated with the security sector. The Security Institute is absolutely delighted to be involved in this unique and exciting initiative.”
