Following the devastating news about the Grenfell Tower disaster, FR Events CEO Jodie Abrahams, and friends from the West London Hotel Association, decided to host a fundraiser in aid of the Grenfell Survivors.
FR Events sponsored and organised the event with the support of all their colleagues, galvanising their contacts to put together an event in a 4 week period #Londonunites was an amazing success and because the event was put on with zero cost (everything had been donated or sponsored) The evening alone raised over £100,000
Says Jodie “ The committee of people that pulled together were all deeply shocked to hear what had happened and wanted to do something to help the survivors devastated by the sudden loss of family, loved ones, friends, neighbours and their homes. A survivor from Grenfell told us his story, and we desperately felt the urge to help, knowing that there would be other people like us who would support too.”
A true philanthropist herself, Jodie founded FR Events, with the vision that her business would have impact and support charities all over the world. To date FR Events has managed to help raise over £38 million for great causes worldwide.
Fundraising runs through the very core of the business, and Jodie’s team share her vision to maximise funds for their clients as well as regularly raising funds for their chosen charities of the month.
