Summer Ball at the Tower of London

A big thank you to all of our supporters who attended our Summer Ball on Saturday. It was an incredible night and a fantastic celebration of our Every Child in School appeal coming to a close. The event was compered by Street Child patron the Apprentice's Nick Hewer and raised in excess of £80,000, all of which will be doubled by the government through our appeal. Thanks to an exclusive performance by the lovely Sarah Harding we are featured in the Daily Mail – click here for the article, and here to see pictures of the night.

A massive success on the night was to encourage guests to really get behind solving the big issue of a severe lack of schools in remote rural areas. The drive was met with resounding support with a total of 35 schools being funded on the night as a result of 35 individual pledges – each of whom got the unique opportunity to name the school their donation was building! 

To find out more about our work building schools in remote areas, read this fantastic article by award-winning journalist Gabriella Józwiak about our work in Tambakha, Northern Sierra Leone. In a region where in 2009 there were only 3 schools, Street Child has helped build over 50 schools and supported almost 5,000 children into an education. And thanks to the support of our generous donors at the Summer Ball, we now have the opportunity to offer hundreds more children in rural communities their only chance of gaining a reliable education.
