Worshipful Company of Cordwainers

Charitable donations from the Blenheim Triathlon

Posted by: JHM Date: 18 Nov 2014

At the Blenheim Triathlon in June, members of the Cordwainers raised a mighty £32,000 for two charities, Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research and Cordwainers 125 at London College of Fashion.

At the Livery Dinner on 12 November, the Master was delighted to present cheques to Professor Frances Corner of LCF and to Alastair Campbell, Chairman of Fundraising at the Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research charity.

Alastair Campbell thanked everyone who had participated in doing ‘this wonderful act for us’, and Frances Corner emphasised how the donation ‘makes a difference to the exceptional work of our students’.
