The ex-dragon den star James Caan is featured in the latest issue of the Affiliates Magazine and the full interview can be viewed on the e-mag at:
We were delighted to have in attendance Hanah Caan, Trustee of the James Caan Foundation to talk about the wonderful work that the Foundation is involved in. Hanah highlighted the continuing needs of the people of Pakistan and their ongoing plight since the devastating floods that wiped out entire towns and villages – and most importantly that these people cannot be forgotten about as they still need our help in building back their villages and their lives. As businesses with a charitable responsibility we were very much moved by the Foundations ‘Build A Village Project’ and this is why we decided to help by holding this event in aid of this charitable cause.
The main focal point of the evening was to raise as much funds as possible and we are pleased to announce that we raised over £4,000 on the night!
Hanah Caan, Trustee of the James Caan Foundation commented on the success of the event:
"I was delighted to be able to attend the event on Wednesday. It was amazing to see the people of Leicester still remember the need of the millions of people still struggling with the aftermath of the floods. Thank you so much to Asma and Sameer (of Douglas Wemyss Solicitors) for their kind generosity and support."
We had many generous donations for the auction; prizes included: Signed books from James Caan (ex-Dragons Den star), Diamond Jewelry from Goldsmiths, Personal Coaching session with ex-England Cricket star Paul Nixon and hire of a Mercedes-Benz SLK 250 Sport Automatic to name but a few!
Asma Karim (of Douglas Wemyss Solicitors, Leicester) stated:
“I am extremely grateful to all of the companies and individuals for their generous donations of raffle and auction prizes; it is this collective coming together of local Leicester based businesses that helped us to raise the monies for charity – not forgetting of course everyone who placed generous bids and bought raffle tickets.”
The evening consisted of elegant savory and sweet canapés catered for by City Rooms in-house chef and served with sparkling wine, and the atmosphere was brought to life by an array of entertainers, including a live pianist, a magician, a Michael Jackson dance impersonator and a singer!
