The October Club, a group of largely City of London-based friends and colleagues which has raised over £4.5 million over the last 17 years, is asking for applications to be the nominated charity for their 2006 event.

The Club is looking for charities “which are doing remarkable work, and for which our substantial contribution will transform their fortunes.”

Last year the Club selected The British Association for Adoption & Fostering as its charity.
