Helping young people to aspire and older people to thrive

Hippodrome hosts dazzling fundraising dinner

On Thursday 15th March 2018, the Hippodrome Casino hosted a glittering black-tie fundraising dinner in aid of the Sir Simon Milton Foundation.

A full house of 120 guests filled the historic Matcham Room theatre and enjoyed a champagne reception, sumptuous three-course meal and entertainment with a live tribute to the Blues Brothers.

Simon Thomas, Chief Executive and owner of the Hippodrome opened the evening, and John Barradell OBE, Chairman, Sir Simon Milton Foundation was invited on stage to introduce the live auction section of the evening.

The event was an overwhelming success, with more than £43,000 raised in total and we are so grateful to everyone who donated so generously and made the event possible. All monies raised from the event will go directly towards the Foundation’s programmes to reduce loneliness and isolation amongst older people in Westminster and getting young people in to work through training and education.
