An FE Week charity auction night held in the grand setting of Birmingham’s Grade II-listed Council House raised at least £5,500 for the Helena Kennedy Foundation. The night was supported by NCFE and Tribal.
More than 100 guests attended the event on Tuesday, November 20, including National Institute of Adult Continuing Education chief executive David Hughes and Learning and Skills Improvement Service chair Dame Ruth Silver.
David Grailey, Chief Executive at NCFE comments, “NCFE is a charitable organisation which aims to create opportunities for learners to succeed in society. Therefore, the core purpose of The Helena Kennedy Foundation is very much aligned to our own values. We’re delighted to support the Foundation and all that it has achieved; engaging young people in learning, enabling them to complete their studies and ultimately move successfully into employment.”
Principals and staff from providers such as Solihull College, Milton Keynes College and East Kent College were also there and enjoyed table-to-table entertainment from 11-year-old yo-yo trickster David Braden Holmes and psychological magician Mark Cairns.
