CPT Dinner raises £4,536!
Transaid were invited to be beneficiary charity once again at last Thursday’s Confederation of Passenger Transport UK (CPT) Annual Dinner. The evening commenced with a speech by Gary Forster, CEO of Transaid, relaying some of Transaid’s key achievements in the past year- much of it owing to the invaluable support of CPT members and other professionals in the Transport & Logistics industry. Speeches were also made by President of CPT John Birtwistle, Chief Executive Simon Posner, the Guest of Honour Andrew Jones MP, and political journalist Andrew Rawnsley.
A raffle in aid of Transaid was held shortly after Andrew’s speech, and guests donated extraordinarily generously to raise over £4,500 for Transaid’s transport programmes in Africa. Thank you to all those who donated for their incredible support, and to CPT for once again selecting Transaid as their chosen charity.
