On 29 October 2019, Leap held its third annual Pledge Dinner at the Mercers’ Hall, London. We received in excess of £144,000 (not including gift aid); one generous donation of £50k was received on the night from Navana Property Group.

Ben Kernighan, Chief Executive, Leap Confronting Conflict says:

A massive thanks to Harry and Navana Property Group for making a hugely generous pledge to Leap. This donation has made them one of our lead donors and I am so grateful for the commitment they have shown to Leap’s young people.

Harry Fenner, Chief Executive Officer for Navana Property Group says:

The fundraising dinner was a fantastic event and Leap is clearly an extremely worthy cause. During the dinner I had the opportunity to speak with course graduates, hear their aspirations and discuss solutions to problems arising across London. After hearing more about Leap’s mission, I realised the charity’s values are closely aligned with ours at Navana Property Group, and together we seek to make a positive impact to the most important social issues affecting local communities. At Navana we are all about making a genuine difference and so I’m delighted the group could support Leap’s hard work, and it will continue to do so in future.
