ASSIST Sheffield

Challenging asylum destitution

Images from our 2016 Fundraising Dinner

In June this year we celebrated Refugee week by holding a Fundraising Dinner at Channing Hall and we are pleased to report that the event raised £1,700 for ASSIST. This was a fantastic total considering it was the very first time we’d put on an event of this type and magnitude.

Our thanks go to all the 98 wonderful guests who came to the dinner. We really do appreciate your support (and your patience when parts of the catering operation didn’t go entirely to plan!)

We also thank the companies who helped us by donating everything from raffle prizes and table linen, to flowers for the table, bread and crockery….and, of course, the friends of ASSIST who provided the musical interludes.

And a huge thank you to the large team of volunteers who worked so very hard on the night, and to the smaller team who organised and promoted the event.

Here are some photos taken during the evening by volunteer photographer, David Mensah . A huge thank you to him, too!
