I wanted to  thank you on behalf of myself and the entire team here at The Eight Foundation for joining us at the Natural History Museum on the 11th May.  We had a very gracious amount of support and this would not have been possible without your attendance.

Your attendance and generosity will enable us as a Foundation to continue to serve those in need and we sincerely appreciate your commitment and time to the Foundation.

The evening was a huge success and provided many wonderful memories which we shall all cherish. Sir Lenny Henry was outstanding at entertaining us for the evening and I was extremely honoured to have been able to have hosted some of the evening along with him.

I have no doubt we were all deeply moved by the beautiful voice of Jasmine Elcock singing ‘Wings’ after the very moving video we were all so fortunate to watch of the beautiful young lady Bethany who sadly passed this April.

I hope you were also inspired as I was by Mr Loyd Durham and his determination and were very excited by his wonderful announcement that he is aiming to compete in the Paralympic Games in the near future.

With your generosity, we were able to raise £ 63,348.60 on the evening an accomplishment we can all be proud of. We are overjoyed at this achievement and gratefully appreciate your support of this event.

We will continue to build on this year’s successes with the support of our friends and community with renewed commitment. We would love for you to be an active member of our Eight Foundation too. Please visit and subscribe for emails and newsletters.

Yours Sincerely

Ian Riggs

Trustee & Chairman
