02 Mar Inside this year’s Stars Studded Prince’s Trust Invest In Futures Gala
The annual Prince’s Trust Invest In Futures Gala this year attracted stars from the worlds of entertainment, business and politics as they teamed up to raise £1.3million for vulnerable young people.
This year’s event saw supporters gather at The Savoy for a fabulous night of fundraising and fun, featuring a unique performance from Jamie Cullum and Trust supported young people.
Hosted by Alexander Armstrong and Helen McCrory, the event kicked off with Pixie Lott performing an acoustic version of David Bowie’s Heroes to HRH and the guests.
“Tonight I’ve met some of the amazing young people The Trust has helped and it’s inspiring to hear how they’ve turned their lives around,” said Pixie Lott.
Now in its 12th year the Invest in Futures gala dinner has raised almost £21 million for the charity and helped to change the lives of tens of thousands of young people by giving them the skills and confidence they need to move into work, education or training.
Among the glamorous attendees were Damian Lewis, Felicity Kendal, Stephen McGann, Colin Salmon, Anna Wilson-Jones, Dame Joan Collins, Jeremy Irons and Joely Richardson.
“The Prince’s Trust save lives,” said actor Damian Lewis. “Lives with great potential, that is what inspires me about this organisation.”
