Vote for Events Industry Cause “Events for Namuwongo” in the Charity Film Awards
12/6/2018
Events for Namuwongo (EFN) was established in September 2011 by Events Industry leaders at the Global Event Summit who decided to create an industry cause. Led by Chris Hughes (Brand Events) as Chairman and Trevor Foley (tfconnect) as CEO of the charity, EFN has raised over £900,000 – an absolutely brilliant contribution – that has meant huge improvements to the basic living conditions of the estimated 30,000 people in the slum community of Namuwongo in Uganda.

The last 12 months have seen further improvements to the quality of lives and standards of education for the children in our adopted community, as well as essential support for the maintenance of key projects that our industry’s generosity made possible in the first place, such as installing toilets and recycling centres, and clearing rubbish. This is due in no short part to the incredible contributions made by EFN patron companies who contributed over £50,000 in 2018/19 alone.

For more information about Events for Namuwongo, go to www.hope-for-children.org/events-namuwongo.

A special thanks to EFN’s Patron companies:

  • CloserStill Media
  • Diversified Communications

  • Montgomery
  • Quartz Business Media
  • Reed Exhibitions
  • Tarsus Group
  • tfconnect
  • The NEC
  • UBM
  • Hugh Keeble (personal donation)
  • Phil Soar (personal donation)
Together, we are transforming the lives of thousands of people in Namuwongo and, as an industry, we should be hugely proud of what we’ve done!

London’s Charity Film Awards
The Charity Film Awards celebrate the success of film in fundraising and aim to demonstrate that a charitable video has the power to move, to warm hearts, to inspire, to engage….to change the world.

Please have a look at the video below, “Events for Namuwongo – The Work” and click here to vote! Voting is open now through December 14th.

At the last awards, 60,000 members of the public voted for charity films and nearly 10% of those who voted also made a donation – not to mention the millions of shares across social media. This is an excellent chance to help EFN connect with a wider audience and raise awareness (and funds!) for our friends in the community of Namuwongo.
