This is the 5th year the event has run and had 350 people in attendance, which included staff, contractors, consultants and suppliers. The event raised a fantastic, the largest amount yet and £20,000 higher than last year.

Sophie Harrison, Head of Communications said "The most sought after prize was the sale of Toni Byrne Price, Operations Director for Outer London and Danny Ellis, Production Director, who offered their private services as toilet cleaners, babysitters and hooverers for a day.
