Lang­don lead­ers and guests at the char­ity’s Manch­ester din­ner

MORE THAN 550 peo­ple at­tended Lang­don’s gala din­ner in Manch­ester on Sun­day, mak­ing it the ed­u­ca­tional char­ity’s largest ever fundraiser.

Hosted by BBC pre­sen­ter Louise Minchin and fea­tur­ing the Lang­don choir, it raised £400,000-plus for the char­ity’s work with young adults with mild-to-mod­er­ate learn­ing dif­fi­cul­ties.

Char­ity chair Jonathan Joseph said af­ter­wards: “Lang­don has grown con­sid­er­ably since the open­ing of our col­lege in 1993 and none of this could have been achieved with­out the gen­er­ous do­na­tions from our sup­port­ers.

“The fact that we had a record num­ber of peo­ple at­tend­ing the din­ner is a re­flec­tion of the ap­pre­ci­a­tion so many peo­ple have to­wards our work to sup­port peo­ple with learn­ing dis­abil­i­ties to live in­de­pen­dently in their com­mu­nity.”
