Your dinner party will be part of the Skoll Challenge, an exciting six week challenge where we are raising urgently needed funds for our work with marginalized children and young people. We can receive $50,000 matched funding from the Skoll Foundation, so what you raise could be doubled or even tripled! This really is the best time of year to raise money for Friends, so we hope you will get involved!
