A black tie dinner held at the OPEN Venue on Bank Plain in Norwich on November 11 raised more than £17,000 for the OPEN Youth Trust.

Guests were stirred by speeches and performances from young people whom the charity has helped make a positive difference to their lives.

During the evening the audience also saw videos of support from Olympic medal winning boxer Anthony Ogogo and Norwich City’s Declan Rudd.

Chief Executive John Gordon-Saker said: “Whilst raising additional funds is always important, our priority was to reach out to the broader business community and create on-going partnerships, sponsorship and wider use of our conference and event facilities so that we can significantly increase the range of activities we can offer young people and achieve the best for them and their families.”

Russ Dacre, chair of trustees for OPEN, said: “We felt the evening was a fitting celebration of 10 years of the OPEN Youth Trust. The young people’s performances, however, for me really made the evening.”
