Nor has it been confirmed whether it will be an annual fundraising event.Given the opprobrium heaped on the behaviour towards women hostesses at the Presidents Club’s dinner, and the efforts of many at the event to distance themselves from association with it, it is not surprising that many companies and individuals have voiced support for this event. M&G, Aviva, Schroders and PwC have already announced their support.
