The Graham Layton Trust hosted its annual pre Ramadan fundraiser, 'Dinner for Sight', at the Royal Nawaab on Saturday 19th March 2022.
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 with occular cancer, treatment for which costs £5,000 a year. Dr Saima Amin, Paediatric Eye Cancer Specilaist 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.
A wonderful and successful evening with many thanks to our guests who contributed generously to the cause.
There was the opportunity to bid for exquisite art work, 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 Monahan.
Ambassador Asha Chohan shared her thoughts on how and why she supports the Graham Layton Trust.
