Partner Events


We are proud to have been chosen as beneficiaries of fundraising events in London and New York.


More than 400 people joined  Arms Around the Child and the amazing cast and producers of Sleep No More for a spectacular immersive fundraiser and launch of the endgame Campaign in New York City. Sleep No More’s McKittrick Hotel opened its doors to celebrity, famed actors & adored musicians to perform, play, and lose themselves in the mystery of this live film noir.  The event also featured pre- and post-show performances by Santigold, Angela McCluskey, DJ Chelsea Leyland, The Hot Sardines and King Holiday.  The event was hosted by Hugh Jackman, Neil Patrick Harris, Geoffrey Rush, Lou Reed, and others.


Arms Around The Child was absolutely delighted and privileged to have been chosen as The Asian Awards beneficial partner at this prestigious event in London. The 3rd Asian Awards  honoured excellence from all Asian countries, over 25 in total and included awards for global Asian icons such as musician Nicole Scherzinger, Ben Kingsley and the legendary Bruce Lee being honoured posthumously. Spotted in the audience among influencers and taste makers were current politicians, Lord Coe who opened the procedings, Peter Andre, Mitch Winehouse, Gurindar Chadha, Nina Wadia among many others.
