Lambert Smith Hampton (LSH) offered clients the unique opportunity to attend a sports themed event and charity auction at the FA Headquarters in Soho Square on Wednesday 25 June.

Boxing legend and former World Light-Heavyweight Champion, John Conteh, joined LSH directors and clients for an evening of networking and fundraising for CLIC Sargent, the leading children’s cancer charity.

The evening kicked off at 6.30pm with a drinks reception and canapés offering plenty of opportunity to network, while casting an eye over the fantastic range of auction lots available.

For those keen to be part of foot-balling history there was the opportunity to bid for a mascot place and two guest tickets for the England v Czech Republic game on 20 August. Other exclusive lots on offer included lunch with Lawrence Dallaglio and a signed Year of the Rose book from England’s rugby Grand Slam heroes. Raffle prizes included Gresham Blake Ties designed by Barry McGuigan, Steve Coogan and Jose Mourhino.

Speaking after the event, Guy Gregory, LSH Head of London, said: “It is fantastic that despite the tighter economy property people showed their heart and helped to raise such a great sum of money for CLIC Sargent. This event gave us and our clients a chance to give something back.”

Live coverage of the Euro semi-final was screened throughout the evening and die hard fans also had their picture taken with the FA cup and took part in a raffle to win a signed Chelsea football.

“We were thrilled to join LSH at the FA for an evening of fun and socialising whilst raising vital funds for CLIC Sargent. LSH raised more than £3,500 for CLIC Sargent on the evening which will make a huge difference to children and young people with cancer and their families,” says Rachel Williams, Corporate Account Manager for CLIC Sargent.
