2019 Fundraising Events Round-up

RPT’s 11th annual Portobello Dinner in September was an incredible success, raising £250,000 to support our children’s and youth programmes in 2020/21, with a focus on expanding our creative arts programme and developing our Football Academy.

Our 30th annual Christmas Market was supported by more than 50 volunteers and showcased more than 40 independent stallholders, as well as our much-loved RPT-run stalls such as bespoke wreaths, home produce and our Christmas Café. The event was an extraordinary success, welcoming almost 500 people and raising more than £50,000, with our auction alone raising £25,000.

In total, our 2019 events raised an extraordinary £350,000, so thank you to everyone who supported these events through attendance, volunteering and donations, and a very special thank you to our corporate sponsors, Strutt & Parker and Christie’s International Real Estate, who sponsored all our events in 2019.
