Special event raises vital funds for HemiHelp and Contact Over 200 guests joined us in December for a very special gala dinner to raise money for HemiHelp and Contact. The event took place at Mansion House in London where guests were welcomed by the former Lord Mayor of London, Sir William Russell, who has a family connection to hemiplegia. Guests were treated to a sumptuous feast prepared by 3 Michelin star chef and Contact Patron and HemiHelp supporter, Clare Smyth MBE. Following dinner guests were invited to take part in an auction of over 70 amazing items like a photoshoot with world famous photographer David Yarrow and an exclusive tour of the Kennedy Compound on Cape Cod. HemiHelp became part of Contact in 2018 and we continue their work. Money raised at the gala dinner and auction will help us reach even more families with our information, support and advice in 2023 including workshops and events for our families living with hemiplegia.
