Night of Adventure, London 2019

March 2019

Emmanuel Centre, 9 – 23 Marsham Street, Westminster, London SW1P 3DW

This year’s Night of Adventure was a night filled with adventure, in aid of Hope and Homes for Children.

We want to thank the 13 incredible speakers, all sharing their tales of adventure with an audience of 900: each speaker was limited to just 20 slides to accompany their tales, shown on a huge screen. Each slide would automatically scroll forward after just 20 seconds. It was fast. It was furious, but, ultimately, it’s been a chance to be swept away to a world filled with adventure, all without leaving your seat!

We are pleased to share that the evening raised over £21k for Hope and Homes for Children in support of #FamiliesNotOrphanages, and has introduced so many new people to the incredible work that is being done with children and their families around the world.

Thank you all for your support! You are contributing to our vision of a world in which children no longer suffer in orphanages.
