EDV Fundraising Dinner
The EDV Fundraising Dinner was held on Monday the 15th April at gorgeous Middle Temple building where I had the honour of meeting Baroness Patricia Scotland, Jahmene Douglas, Claire Sweeney and also Thandi Newton. There where other guests of the CAADV and EDV I met, like Russel Jacobs of Millbank and also Mike Anderson of Couts of London…. Always good to meet such wonderful people who help the the Corporate Against Domestic Violence…
After the dinner the CAADV had a fundraising auction and the auctioneer ,Tom Watson from Christies of London, was excellent in his role of handling the bids of people who opened their wallets generously for the CAADV cause….
‘The Corporate Alliance Against Domestic Violence (CAADV) is a leading force in fighting against domestic violence in the UK. We are a progressive group of companies working collectively to raise awareness of the impact of domestic violence in the workplace and provide policies and procedures for your member firms and their employees. We also offer training to our members and share our experiences to build a base of best practise reducing the cost of domestic violence.’
Baroness Scotland founded the Corporate Alliance against Domestic Violence in 2005 and became its founding Patron when it became a registered charity in 2010. In 2011, she also founded the Global Foundation for the Elimination of Domestic Violence.
