Black Tie Gala Dinner 12 November 2022

We are incredibly excited to be holding our very first Black Tie Gala Dinner, hosted by Royal Russell School, to raise funds to support our ever-increasing efforts promoting social mobility in Croydon.  We will be showcasing some of the talent that we have nurtured at the Foundation along with entertainment provided by some of our partner schools’ students.

Tickets are priced at £100 each or £900 for a table of ten.  So invite along your friends, family and colleagues and benefit from a [reasonable] discount!  We only have 12 tables available for the evening and with a few already pre-booked, don’t waste time and book your place or table early.  All you have to do is email

We are also hoping that you might be able to help us with an item or two for our live or silent auctions.  As you are probably aware, auctions raise a substantial amount of income at these events so having 8-10 wonderful items such as sporting tickets and memorabilia, holiday lets and spa breaks, cases of wine, artwork etc will be invaluable to us.

Just in case you aren’t fully up to date with the Rowdown Foundations achievements to date here are some key highlights and comments from the families we support and the people we work alongside to improve social mobility.  At the moment, money is flowing out quicker than ever as we get deeper into the cost of living crisis, so your support would be so very welcome.
