Milestone birthday event supports children's charity

09 April 2018

FM consultant Anne Lennox-Martin is using her 70th birthday celebrations to raise funds for the Salaam Baalak Trust, a non-profit organisation providing care and support for children in Delhi, India.

The event will be held on 29 September with guests enjoying Indian food and Bollywood-style entertainment.

Held at the Octagon at Queen Mary University of London, formerly the college library, the venue will be transformed into a Bollywood movie set.

Inspiration to raise money for the charity came when Ms Lennox-Martin visited Delhi with her husband last year.

She found that children in the city had "frequently been lost or stolen and many exposed to frightening situations and abuse.

"One story that touched me was that you cannot offer them a blanket when the nights get cold as it is an invitation for someone to slide underneath and rape them with their hand over their mouth," she said.

"I want to do everything I can to raise money for this worthy cause," said Ms Lennox-Martin.

Promising that the event will be a "memorable evening", she further said those unable to attend will be welcome to "support the charity through a small donation".

Tickets can be purchased and donations made here.
