10 x 10 : 16th November 2018 PwC, 7 More London Riverside, SE1 2ERFriday 16th November, from 6:30pmSCROLL DOWN TO THE BOTTOM TO BOOK YOUR PLACE AND PLEDGE TO ATTEND! 10x10’s MISSION To empower the next generation of giving. 10x10 London was launched in May 2017 and our first 3 events engaged over 450 young professionals, supported 9 grassroots charities, raised just under £100,000 and set a global fundraising record. The events have supported grassroots UK charities providing genuinely innovative solutions to social problems in the UK including combating drug and alcohol addiction, prevention of suicide in young men and professional coaching in prisons to reduce re-offending. Nick Jenkins, founder of Moonpig and a 'Dragon for Good' at our May 2017 event commented: "This type of fundraising model for young professionals is exactly what’s needed in the charity sector at the moment." HOW DOES IT WORK? 1. Ten event committee members organise a charity event and engage sponsors to provide an exciting venue and lots of delicious food and drink. 2. Each committee member invites at least ten of their friends to come to the event (10x10... get it?) 3. Attendees donate £60 or more to attend, and this creates a pool of at least £6,000 in donations. 4. Upon arrival at the event each attendee is given their 'Charity Pledges' equal to the value of their donation. 5. Three CHARITIES pitch their cause to the audience and describe their model and impact. 6. Three DRAGONS quiz the charities in front of the audience 7. Each audience member then gets to put their Charity Pledges towards the charity (or charities) of their choice. 10x10 events in the UK are powered by Raise Your Hands, as the organisations share an aim: inspiring the next generation of donors to give effectively. THE CHARITIES Team Up uses tuition, delivered by inspirational role models, to enable pupils from low income backgrounds to meaningfully increase their academic attainment, in order to improve the choices open to them.

Founded in May 2013, Free Me started by offering jewellery making workshops and peer to peer support groups The cost of inpatient care is staggering and the strain on the NHS means that many people do not get the help they desperately need. Many people leave treatment early, not because they are ready but because they run out of funding. Free Me makes a small but powerful contribution to the treatment problem in the U.K by providing a space for women to challenge their eating disorders or addiction whilst waiting for treatment, during treatment or post-treatment as an extra support system and network. Over the years, they have offered a varied programme built on the foundational principles of peer support and experts by experience. In addition to the peer support programme they have been fortunate enough to offer individual therapy, group therapy, nutritional support, drama and movement therapy and access to a Work to Recover programme. www.freemecharity.com THE DRAGONS Keith Bedell-Pearce CBEKeith Bedell-Pearce is the Honorary Treasurer of the University of Warwick and a Trustee of the university’s charity, the Warwick Foundation.
