Lansdowne Club to host VCHP dinner

Prestigious Mayfair venue, The Lansdowne Club, once the home of Mr Selfridge, is to host a dinner for Vision Care for Homeless People on Thursday 23 November.

The fundraising dinner – which is expected to reach out to new supporters – enables guests to enjoy entertainment in some of the most beautiful rooms of the London club. In a rare opportunity, guests will be free to enjoy the Robert Adam ballroom and beautiful long gallery.

With tickets priced at £50, the dinner is set to raise funds for the 14 year old charity’s important work in providing eye examinations and glasses for the dispossessed. With centres in London, Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham, Brighton and Exeter, there are plans in 2018 to extend the clinics to other cities where there is a significant need.

Elaine Styles, Chair of the charity, explained –

“Sadly there is a growing problem with homelessness in the UK and we are in a strong position to do something about the visual needs of this vulnerable group of people. We are always looking for volunteers and supporters but we feel this dinner – potentially the first of many – is a new way to raise awareness with potential patrons. I do hope we will attract a new group of supporters to this very worthwhile and attractive event.”
