After 10 months of planning and driving publicity, our PR and events team helped HOMELINK put on a spectacular fundraising Gala at Glyndebourne Opera House today.
Together Martha, Nick, Kelly and Iona:
- Managed press attendees and the Gala photographer;
- Briefed presenters Steve Coogan, Eddie Izzard, Katie Derham, Zoe Lyons, Toby Stephens, Sophie Okonedo, Anna Burns, Simon Fanshawe and Nimmy March;
- Ran the Green Room for presenters and their guests;
- Oversaw back stage cues for presenters throughout the performance.
The cash is still being counted but the donations and new volunteer enquiries are already flooding in via the HOMELINK website.
"We could not get over the quality of what you'd brought together, and as far as imagining the logistics, well, that took our breath away!"
Davina Irwin-Clark, the High Sheriff of West Sussex
