On February 4th, MCT held its first major fundraising event, a Gala Dinner to celebrate the organisationâs 2nd anniversary as a registered charity.
The evening featured a variety of music, including performances from Gli Amici della Musica Quintet and Mr Serboute and his orchestra. Our guests also enjoyed a wonderful Moroccan meal prepared by Oasis caterers and bid generously in our auction, taking home items such as a weekend for two in Marrakech, traditional Moroccan furniture and rugs produced by a womenâs cooperative linked to our organisation.
Thanks to the generosity of our guests, the event raised more than £7,000- enough money to run the project for 3 months! Our thanks go to everyone who contributed to the success of the evening, particularly Dr Abdallah Alaoui (BMCE Bank) and Souad Talsi MBE (Al-Hasaniya) for their advice and support and Sarah Sibley (Street Children Project Intern) who organised the dinner.
