Vision Care for Homeless People (VHCP) will host a fundraising dinner at the Lansdowne Club in Mayfair, London in a bid to attract new supporters.

The event will offer guests dinner and entertainment in the Robert Adam ballroom and long gallery on 23 November.

The charity is raising funds to expand its work into new cities, providing sight tests and spectacles for the homeless.

VHCP currently operates at its centres in London, Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham, Brighton and Exeter.

Chair of the charity, Elaine Styles, said: “Sadly there is a growing problem with homelessness in the UK and we are in a strong position to do something about the visual needs of this vulnerable group of people.”

“We are always looking for volunteers and supporters but we feel this dinner – potentially the first of many – is a new way to raise awareness with potential patrons. I do hope we will attract a new group of supporters to this very worthwhile and attractive event,” she added.

Tickets are priced at £100. For further enquiries, email Harry Todd.
