The founding 15 mentees from the inaugural Fast Forward 15 programme raised thousands for charity with A Night of Sparkle.

The exclusive charity reception at Basement at The London Edition raised more than £3,500, with all proceeds going to Newlife Foundation, The Prince’s Trust and The Clink. The event was developed in response to a challenge set down to test the event organising mettle of the mentees. 

Fay Sharpe, Zibrant MD and founder of Fast Forward 15, said: “I’m incredibly proud of our mentees and the journey they have been on the past 10 months. It’s been a pleasure to witness them develop, grow in confidence and achieve both professional and personal goals that they set. Therefore, I’m not surprised that the event was such a success and am delighted that such worthy charities will be the beneficiaries.”

Fundraising activities on the night included a jewellery sale courtesy of Newlife, while raffle prizes were donated by firms including All About Flights, Green Route Africa, One & Only Cape Town, MICEBOOK and The Savoy. 

Following the success of its inaugural year, Fast Forward 15 is returning for 2016, offering 15 new mentees the opportunity to be a part of the programme. Applications close on Monday 22 February and candidates can still apply at www.fastforward15.co.uk
