Save the Children's Night of Hits

A Night of Hits

A Night of Hits 2018

The evening raised an extraordinary £1.2m for vulnerable children around the world.

Seventh and final year

For the seventh and final year, we were delighted to celebrate another incredible night of music and fundraising as we brought the very best of the 80s, 90s and 2000s to London.

The evening raised an extraordinary £1.2m for vulnerable children around the world.

This year guests were taken on magical musical journey through the Top 40 hits of the 80s, 90s and 2000s. Show stopping performances on the night included the Pointer Sisters, Beverley Knight, and Curiosity Killed The Cat.

Saba Al Mubaslat spoke movingly about her 14 years’ experience working for Save the Children, including her management role of Za’atari refugee camp, and Helena Bonham Carter and Dora Loewenstein gave inspiring speeches about their passion for Save the Children’s work.

 

The night’s fundraising included a fantastic silent and live auction, with prizes including artwork by Marc Quinn, stunning holidays to the Maldives, Thailand and Portugal, and the chance to watch the ballet in the wings of the Royal Opera House. Guests were phenomenally generous with their support, with one lot, a signed guitar and photo donated by Mick Jagger, reaching £70,000!

We are extremely grateful to everyone who attended and supported and you can still add your support to this incredible evening.
