The evening was made all the more special by the hugely generous donations made by banks and bankers to our charity for 2013, Action Against Cancer, the results of which are published below.
Action Against Cancer is a charity run by a brilliant oncologist, Professor Justin Stebbing. The £781,900 raised by our friends in the market will make a huge difference to his groundbreaking research, which we hope will eventually provide a cost-effective, global treatment for a broad range of cancers.
The cause is very special to all of us at Euromoney it was a charity close to the heart of our former chairman, Padraic Fallon, who died of cancer last year.
Our thanks to every company and individual who gave so generously at the dinner.
