An inaugural Security Associations Annual Fundraising Event will run on Tuesday, September 30, at the Grange City Hotel, a five star venue which overlooks the Tower of London. This will be a black tie event, and an opportunity to network with colleagues, entertain guests or simply enjoy a relaxed atmosphere, whilst at the same time helping to support two charities.
The ticket price of £100 includes a three course dinner menu, and free entry into the £20 ticketed prize raffle. This year, the guest speaker will be The Lord Carlile of Berriew CBE QC. The event will begin with a welcome reception at 6:30pm, then dinner which will conclude at 11pm, with a cash bar during and after.
The associations involved are hoping to raise £40,000 which will be split equally between the two charities. They are:
St Giles Trust aims to help break the cycle of prison and crime, creating safer communities by supporting people to help them change their lives. They offer a range of services which have helped over 16,000 overcome any barriers which might be holding them back. Ultimately, they equip people with skills to help them live independent lives.
PTSD Resolution offers counselling to the UK Armed Forces, TA and Regular Reserves, including their dependants, to relieve mental health problems resulting from military service and traumas that they have faced. The PTSD Resolution Outreach Programme has over 200 counsellors trained in trauma‐focussed cognitive behavioural therapy and provides a contact point for anyone requiring counselling, complementary to the work of the other armed forces charities.
Don Randall is chairman of the organising committee and the City of London Crime Prevention Association, said “I am honoured to be part of this fundraising project which has brought together professionals from the various security associations in the UK, and delivered what I hope will be an annual event on everyone’s calendar for many years to come.”
And Andy Williams, Chairman of ASIS International’s UK Chapter said, “Following on from the hugely successful charity event that ASIS held in 2013 when we raised £20,000, we are positive that by joining forces with our industry friends, we can double that figure in 2014.” The associations responsible for helping to organise this event include the City Of London Crime Prevention Association (COLPA), The Security Institute, ASIS International, IPSA and ADS Group Limited.
