LCCUK’s Ex President Mr Egonas Jakimavicius commented: “We are proud that our Annual Charity Ball has become a cherished tradition. We are also proud that at last year’s Charity Ball we raised over forty three thousand Euros for Charity Fund of Vilnius University Children’s Hospital. I believe we can do even better this year and help The Charity Funds ‘SAVE THE CHILDREN LITHUANIA’ and ‘Men Fund’. This is also a wonderful opportunity to acquire incredible experiences, prizes and important works of art at our charity auction, to enjoy performances by famous Lithuanian musicians and have a good time at one of London’s most celebrated, iconic and exclusive venues – The Savoy Hotel.”
LCCUK and the British-Lithuanian community remain dedicated to supporting industry, education and charitable causes in Lithuania and the UK.
The purpose of Charity Ball 2018 is to raise funds for The Charity Funds ‘Save the Children Lithuania’ and ‘Men Fund’.
‘Save the Children Lithuania’ is the leading independent organisation creating lasting change in the lives of children in need, both in Lithuania and around the world. Recognised for its commitment to accountability, innovation and collaboration, the activities of the organisation reach the heart of urban and rural communities, where children and families are helped to help themselves. ‘Save the Children Lithuania’ is working with other organisations, governments, non-profits and a variety of local partners while maintaining its own independence without following any political agenda or religious orientation. In 2017, around 25 000 children’s lives were touched by Save the Children Lithuania. The organisation’s vision is a world in which every child enjoys the right to survival, protection, development and participation. Save the Children Lithuania’s mission is to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives. More about the organisation here
Establishing and naming charity fund ‘The Men Fund‘ (‘Vyrų fondas‘) was an initiative of men, which disagree with the stereotype that charity is an exclusive activity of women. We would like to encourage men in Lithuania and globally to participate in the charity activities, especially in the areas where figure of man or father is critical. Of course, women do participate in the activities of the fund and are always welcomed. Currently ‘The Men Fund‘ is concentrated on helping families, whose children are affected by diabetes.
