Previously: LGBT+ History Month Reception

To celebrate LGBT+ History Month we at Diversity Role Models held a fundraising drinks reception at The Club at The Ivy with wonderful DRM Patron Clare Balding and Former Olympic Swimmer Mark Foster hosting proceedings. The night saw many supporters, volunteers and funders all come together to celebrate our work in schools and to share in our passion for making them a more inclusive place for all.

The event raised an incredible £21,949.35 - the equivalent to 2,194 young people receiving our workshops in their classroom. We can not thank our event supporters Interlaw Diversity Forum and our event sponsors Jefferies, Miller and Lloyds enough for helping us make it happen.
