Started by the two Sheriffs of the City of London, the Fund remains wonderfully supported by them. Every year the new Sheriffs and their consorts initiate and run a fund-raising event: in 2015, dressed in animal onesies, they rode a tandem round several Livery Halls. In 2016 they mounted horses for a similar ride (an act of bravery by Sheriff Dr Christine Rigden, who had not ridden a horse before).
The Recorder of London, His Honour Judge Nicholas Hilliard QC, is a vital link between the Fund and the Old Bailey, where he is the Senior Circuit Judge. He is a great supporter of the Fund’s activities, for example acting as host at breakfasts where guests are introduced to the Fund.
Tandem rides, horse rides, breakfasts, receptions, tours, concerts, sheep drives, book launches, sponsored runs, theatrical shows, debates, fashion shows, children’s parties, wine tastings – events galore – are all dreamed up and organised by people who believe 100% in the value and efficacy of the Fund’s work.
