ORT UK ANNUAL DINNER 2017

More than 250 guests helped to raise over £450,000 at the ORT UK Annual Dinner, held at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower, Knightsbridge.  This year's fundraising focus was on a range of educational projects run by World ORT Kadima Mada.

We were honoured to have as our guest speaker, The Secretary of State for International Development, The Rt Hon Priti Patel who endorsed the important work or ORT UK and spoke of how crucial and valuable education is in bringing hope and possibility for a better future.

Guests were entertained to the stunning "Capriccio-Valse" by composer Heinrich Wieniawski performed by 17 year old Israeli violinist Solomon Markman, an undergraduate student at the Royal College of Music in London and pianist Thomas Kelly, winner of the Pianale International  Piano Competition 2017.

The evening was rounded of with one of Britain's best known comedians and impersonators, Rory Bremner who delivered fantastic impersonations including Donald Trump, Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and Les Dawson!
