Last year we were privileged to host another successful fundraising gala for the ICG Foundation. And as always, we could not have pulled off a successful event without the help and support of our community. We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
Our 2022 fundraising gala took place on November 26 at Lingfield racecourse, where 150+ guests gathered in black ties and ball gowns in effort to empower the next generation.
Fundraising events are the lifeblood of many non-profit organizations, because without the valuable contributions from each and every person, we would not be able to reach as many charities as we would like. Guests in attendance were able to connect with each other and share the purpose of helping underprivileged children.
The evening consisted of a live band, casino tables, dinner, dancing, live auction, silent auction, raffle and all-round fun. There were some awesome prizes to be won, including Arsenal football tickets, annual Lingfield Park membership, two-night stay in Rome, spa vouchers, membership to Anytime Fitness and so much more!
The fundraiser was a huge success and we managed to raise a whopping £41 294.60 which was split across the charities that we support! This would not have been possible without the love and support from our generous sponsors, partners, and community members, so THANK YOU.
We were excited to have Platform Property on board as our official event partner for 2022 – we are truly grateful for all your effort and contribution! Platform Property are a full-service Estate Agency covering Kent & Surrey who offer unbeatable customer service, property presentation, extensive market coverage and highly competitive fees.

Our local charity, Stripey Stork attended the evening and had a display of toys so that people could chat to them to find out more about what Stripey Stork does, and about Santa Stork - their Christmas project which ICG Foundation generously supports.
Santa Stork is important to us and the families it supports. Many families struggle over the Christmas period and are torn between getting their kids presents or having the basic essentials. Yes, we cannot solve the bigger problem, but at least we were able to bring joy to 100’s of kids on Christmas.
With the funds raised on the evening, along with support from many other sponsors, Santa Stork was able to provide filled gift bags for 4434 children on Christmas. This is an amazing achievement that warms our hearts!
The cost-of-living crisis has affected a large portion of the population, putting more families under financial burden. Together with our charities, we will strive to keep doing what we can to support these families and children in need.
We can’t do it alone, and count on our community to be a helping hand.
