The Graham Layton Trust hosted its fourth annual pre-Ramadan fundraiser, ‘Dinner for Sight’, on Saturday 19th March 2022. Guests were welcomed to a sumptuous three-course meal.
The evening was hosted by actor and Trustee Art Malik who spoke to the charity’s CEO Nusrat Mirza about her recent visit to Pakistan where she met with patients whose lives have been transformed through the work of GLT and LRBT.
Special attention was given to children suffering from ocular cancer, treatment for which costs £5,000 a year. Dr Saima Amin, Paediatric Eye Cancer Specialist at LRBT and Pakistan’s first fellowship-trained ocular oncologist, appeared on video to share how she has been saving children’s sight through early intervention.
There was the opportunity to bid for exquisite artwork, concert tickets, and a stunning sculpture in the evening’s live auction, conducted by Ajmal Masroor. Guests were also treated to entertainment by comedian Patrick Manohan.
A wonderful and successful evening with many thanks to our guests who contributed generously to the cause.
