Charities Supper 2022

 Registration is closed for this event
Our annual celebration of our ProBono work, preceded by an admissions ceremony.  This event is open both to Company Members and Non-Members to book.

Our ProBono Work in the Spotlight

Our ProBono work differentiates WCoMC from all other Livery Companies and other organisations providing support to the NonProfit Civil Sector, with our members providing over £1m of support each year through their consultancy or mentoring work to numerous clients.

This is one of our defining annual events so we are very keen to share this traditional, yet relatively informal, occasion with as many of our contacts and clients in the Sector as possible, particularly introducing the spectacular setting of a City Livery Hall to them. This year we will be in the beautiful Barber-Surgeons' Hall - a first for the Company - with its tranquil location alongside the Roman Wall.

We would therefore encourage all members to invite such contacts and clients as guests to ensure this tradition continues. We are delighted to confirm that, as in previous years, this event has been sponsored and therefore the costs are lower than members and guests might expect given the location! If you are not able to attend and invite guests, do note that non-members may also book directly.

We will have three speakers, all ProBono clients, who will talk briefly about their work and how they are going "onwards and upwards" following our help:

  • Jonathan Collie - who is the Founder and Chief Executive of The Age of No Retirement. Our Charitable Fund has provided grant funding and we have provided pro bono support in developing and extending their Common Room project across London
  • Alison Farquhason - who is the headteacher at Buckhurst Hill School and who has been supported by one of our experienced mentors over the past year.
  • Rose Aidin - who is Chief Executive of Art History Link-Up, which she founded to make Art History available to all. She contacted the Company in early 2020 for help in business planning, allied to making improved grant requests. 

The supper will be preceded by an Admissions Ceremony, a traditional opportunity for existing members to welcome new Freemen and congratulate those who are being clothed in our Livery.

The dress code is Business Attire.
