Attracting guests from many City firms, retailers and the legal sector, the event in 2016 was an incredible success and raised an outstanding £130,000 for the charity.

Taking place in Merchant Taylors Hall in the City of London, it features an auction hosted by Christie’s auctioneer David Elswood. Amongst the guests who have supported Back Up at the City Dinner are rugby union stars Ben Cohen, Lewis Moody and James Haskell. Eric Lanlard, celebrity pâtissier and committee member of Back Up’s City Dinner, is also a regular supporter.

Next year, the City Dinner will be taking place on Thursday 4th May. Save the date in your calendars and don’t miss out on a great event and a opportunity to support our amazing charity.
