We were thrilled to see so many veteran volunteers as well as new faces for the inaugural London Mellon Educate Gala Dinner. There were over 300 guests at the event and the auction raised approximately £100,000. One hundred percent of funds will go towards our education programme in South Africa.
We heard speeches from Niall Mellon and Namhla Siboya, an inspirational learner form Usasazu High School. Although it was a celebration of our London community, it was wonderful to have so many members of the Mellon Educate family from Ireland and South Africa with us.
Thanks to all who came, donated prizes or made pledges; and for all the support that we receive throughout the year from our wonderful supporters!
