Porsche Centre Mayfair was proud to support and sponsor our new partners, the British Asian Trust, for their annual Gala Dinner. Held at the prestigious London Natural History Museum, the fundraising event was a phenomenal success and raised a total of £900,000 in aid of the British Asian Trust charitable work.
Hosted by comedian and actor Sanjeev Bhaskar, the dinner was a star-studded affair with ambassadors and supporters of the Trust from the worlds of film, TV, music and sport. Guests included music mogul Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh, musician Labrinth, model Neelam Gill, director Gurinder Chadha, and actress Meera Syal to name a few.
As partners of the Trust, Porsche Centre Mayfair supported the event with the all-new 911 and the bestselling Cayenne on display. The model display and backdrop of the world famous Natural History Museum provided a stunning setting for the lavish red carpet entrance to the gala dinner. Another famous guest was in attendance at the fundraiser; the iconic Diplodocus arched over guests in the Hintze Hall as they were treated to an Indian banquet and a night of great entertainment with music from Leona Lewis.
President and founder of the trust, Prince Charles made a compelling speech praising the Trust's remarkable work in the impoverished and underprivileged communities of South Asia. Using the event as a perfect platform to raise awareness, Prince Charles also announced a new £3 million fund dedicated to the work in Pakistan: "The fund will support the exponential growth of my Trust's work in Pakistan on livelihoods and mental health, ensuring that we reach even more of Pakistan's most vulnerable people in the years ahead." He also said "I am particularly proud that my Trust does not shy away from them and contributes, in its own way, to resolving some of the most difficult issues of our time."
Since it was founded in 2007, the British Asian Trust has made a real difference by targeting programmes that support education, livelihoods, mental health and anti-trafficking. The Trust has now positively impacted over three million lives in the widespread poverty areas of Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka.
