5th Anniversary Gala Evening
Key4Life celebrated five years of incredible achievements in supporting young men break the cycle of crime and gain sustained employment with a very special Gala Evening, “Enchanted Extravaganza” on 10th May 2018 at Porchester Hall in London, with 350 guests and inspiring words from Eva Hamilton MBE, the charity's Founder and CEO.
Key4Life Caseworker and Ambassador, Anthon, and the young men launched the White Flag campaign, #4lifewithoutknives with Jordan Stephens performing his specially-written poignant poem “Hand”. The evening’s entertainment included the Key4Life Band and a stunning solo from Chi Ennis-Mclean.
We extend our gratitude to Alex Head, Founder of Social Pantry for being our fabulous master of ceremonies and to our corporate sponsors, Willis Towers Watson and The Chelsea Football Club Foundation. We are delighted to report the ‘Enchanted Extravaganza’ raised over £60k - crucial funds for further Key4Life participants who are:
• 4 times more likely to be employed a year after release
• 4 times less likely to reoffend.
A massive thank you to all our supporters and guests for your generosity and the young men for your presentation and insightful words.
