- Security TWENTY
- Women in Security
The Rembrandt Hotel in west London is again the venue for the Worshipful Company of Security Professionals’ (WCoSP) Spring Dance, on Saturday, March 2. Entertainment is by Steve Wonder & Friends + Irie J. Tickets for the event are £128 including VAT for a four-course dinner with wines. Proceeds from the auction will be donated to the WCoSP Charitable Trust and the Security Benevolent Fund.
Event organiser and past Master of the WCoSP Peter French said: “The Security Benevolent Fund was established in 2007 to support men and women that are, or have been, employed in the security industry. That is people like Rosie who is a security officer, but due to an abusive marriage had to leave home with her six-year-old child and was sofa surfing; or James, who is holding down a job as a shift officer while looking after his ageing mum and dad, but the washing machine had broken and he could not afford to repair or replace it.
“Those that apply to the SBF are in immediate hardship and our intervention, along with the work of the Trustees, can be crucial – but without funds our ability to help will be reduced.
“As well as providing financial assistance, the SBF provides welfare advice, guidance and support for your colleagues from the entire security sector; working alongside other charities where required, the SBF provides support for individuals who find themselves in hardship and need help, like Rosie and James.
“At the annual Spring Ball we are holding an auction and raffle, which is the bit that you may be able to assist us with. If you are able to donate items of memorabilia or perhaps experiences others could not otherwise buy. This could be private tours of art works, corporate dining (always popular) or event tickets. If you can think of any other ways of raising money or you could encourage others to donate, please let me know. Together we can make a difference.”
