£3,000, others will make £53,000. If we can average out at about £5,000 per venue we’d be taking a very big step forward. I’m hopeful we’ll generate between £3m and £5m for charity.” Each venue will reveal their chosen charity at the press launch, with each participant also contributing to Te Global Charity Trust. One confirmed charity is Te Mayor’s Fund for London, an organisation tasked with tackling child poverty in the capital. Tey anticipate a significant windfall from this year’s party at


Te Savoy, one of Te Global Party’s flagship, and most eagerly anticipated events. David says: “Te courtyard of the hotel is being closed off, which is only the second time in history that’s happened. Tey’re also closing off the river restaurant for exclusive use, which has never happened before. After dinner there’ll be a quasi cabaret in the Beaufort Bar, which they’ve also never done, so it’s a private event within the hotel, as opposed to just a ballroom full of people. It really is something quite unique.”


Tis year’s Global Party will be the biggest


private charity fundraiser ever held, and like any ambitious CEO, David is confident it will snowball into an ever-more successful event. He said: “From concept to reality the first Global Party was two years in the making. After that it then took three months to have the guts to build something up again and see what we could do differently.” David added: “It’s really exciting. Tere are a lot of people involved, from the owners who give up their venues to the charities behind it. We really want to give them a platform to make as much money as possible. Te trick is to find a formula that works and then to better it. Te idea is to roll it out as a yearly fundraiser and for it to get better and better as time goes on.”
