Event description

Description

In the 21st Century should we prioritise supporting people with problems on our doorstep or does spending a pound in a developing country have more impact than a pound spent here?

With Lord Lieutenant Peaches Golding as Chair, our distinguished speakers will be debating the motion “This house believes that charity begins at home.”

Speaking for the motion will be Bristol’s Deputy Mayor Asher Craig and politician, architect and entrepreneur George Ferguson. Speaking against the motion are venture philanthropy pioneer Stephen Dawson and Vashti Seth, founder of African micro-finance charity Deki.

As part of Quartet Community Foundation’s philanthropy service we are bringing you this lively, insightful evening where you can join in the discussion, cast your vote and enjoy drinks and a delicious supper afterwards.

Doors open at 6pm for a 6.30pm start. A standing buffet supper will be served from 8pm.
