The Charity

Over the last 12 years the International Women’s Day city breakfasts have raised over £280,000 for Refuge. Since opening the world’s first refuge 46 years ago the charity has been saving and rebuilding the lives of thousands of women and children who experience domestic violence every year.

The Opportunity

Sponsored by HSBC with support from the City Corporation, City of London Police, FANY (Princess Royal's Volunteer Corps), VSG and JDHR, your organisation can take a table of 10 places in return for a donation to Refuge of minimum £1,200. A number of individual places are available on request.
