Euromoney raises £540,000 for charity
Before the dinner, Euromoney conducted a charity tombstone auction on behalf of Little Rock School, an educational institution in the Kibera slum in Nairobi. The sum raised was £540,000, thanks to some enormously generous contributions from the banks attending the dinner on the night. A full list of donors will be published tomorrow and in forthcoming Euromoney publications.
Euromoney is pleased to announce a partnership with AbleChildAfrica to support building a new school for the children of Kibera. Money raised will facilitate the purchase of land and development and construction of a new centre that will cater through education and health care for children suffering from disabilities and health issues.
Euromoney would like to thank everyone who contributed to this worthy cause.
