Invest in Futures gala dinner

First set up in 2005, Invest in Futures has raised a life-changing figure of almost £21 million.

The impact of this initiative is astounding - over the years, supporters of the event have enabled The Trust to change the lives of almost 20,000 young people.

Invest in Futures 2017 saw stars and city influencers join together at The Savoy to raise an incredible £1.3 million for disadvantaged young people all across the United Kingdom. Hosted by Alexander Armstrong and Helen McCrory OBE, the 12th annual dinner included dazzling performances by Pixie Lott and the world renowned Jamie Cullum.

Guests were treated to auction lots such as meet and greets with Sir Elton John and Phil Collins and tea at The Ritz with Dominic West. As well as key supporters of The Prince’s Trust, the event was attended by Celebrity Ambassadors including Thierry Henry, Dame Joan Collins, Kelly Hoppen MBE and Jeremy Irons, with Damian Lewis making a special appearance on stage. This spectacular evening is certainly one that is not to be missed next year.
