Youth homelessness charity launches£1m fund-raising bid with gala dinner

St Basils hosted a gala dinner at Edgbaston Stadium to kickstart its 50th anniversary celebrations, raising £9,500 towards a new Live and Work scheme in Birmingham. The event hosted by Heart FM’s Ed James saw friends and supporters of the charity enjoy a three-course meal, entertainment and live auction. St Basils aims to raise £1million over its anniversary year to build on the success of its Sandwell Live and Work scheme, creating a new facility in Birmingham city centre which will enable more young people to live, work, earn and learn.
