Estate Office support a number of charities and their critical work every year. We were honoured therefore to attend and support both Langdon's Annual Charity Dinner on Monday 13th May at the London Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square, and the PROPS 28th Annual Awards Lunch which took place the following day on Tuesday 14th May at London Hilton, Park Lane.
Langdon, which has been running since 1992, supports Jewish people with learning disabilities, helping them to lead independent and fulfilling lives. They do this by providing accomodation and helping them to find work and connect with their local community. More information about their work can be found at langdonuk.org.
The annual dinner was a wonderful evening, where a record 554 attendees together pledged almost £650,000 to support the charity. Highlights included members of the charity helping to host the evening and offering inspiring personal stories, as well as guest appearances from the likes of actor Warwick Davies who also offered a moving account of his own experiences.
