Stagestruck and Crayon are among the agencies supporting the fundraising dinner that the Barclays events team is organising for the Stuart Feakins Trust.

Barclays head of events Sarah Wright said that Stagestruck, Crayon, Lodestar, Zibrant, HBI, Line Up, De Vere, Hilton and Marriott were among the industry companies backing the charity event, which takes place on Friday 15 May.

Paralympic champion Marc Woods is to give a motivational speech at the dinner, and the Stuart Feakins Trust is running an online charity auction as part of the event.

To bid on one of the auction prizes, click here. Bids are possible until 3pm on Friday, when the site will be closed but guests attending the dinner can continue bidding until 10.30pm.

Money raised by the auction and dinner will be used to support young people in Hackney through a social experiences and activities programme.

Donations to the auction can be made via richard.parker3@barclays.com

"We have been staggered by the support we've received for the auction - we have more than 50 prizes so far," said Wright.

A few tickets for the dinner are still available. For information, contact caroline.rae@barclays.com
