Wednesday's Charity Gala at the BADA Fair in London turned out to be something of an Old Brightonians' reunion... as seems so often to be the case!
Those present included Shirley Waldron (Fen. 1976-78), Joey Appleton (D. 1979-84), Ben Stott (R. 1979-84), Guy Bradshaw (R. 1979-84), Justin Marsham (S. 1979-83), Dan Gorton (D. 1981-86) and our former President David Gold (S. 1986 - 91), as well as the wonderful Caroline Court (nee Blyth, F. 1976-78) who performed as our auctioneer for the evening - helping us raise over £20,000 within just 2 short hours!
David was born in 1972 and is currently Head of Public Affairs at Royal Mail Group. Educated at Royal Holloway and Brighton College he previously worked in business development for a national consultancy in Central London and as a researcher to two Conservative MPs. He worked for Rt Hon William Hague from 1997 to 1999 in his Private Office.
Prior to attending the Heads of School Dinner on Saturday 14th September, David Gold (S. 1986-91) will be spending the night at Battersea Dogs Home... PLEASE HELP ME TO HELP BATTERSEA DOGS HOME.
I arrived at my last annual dinner ‘in charge’ on an extremely cold evening thankful that, at least, we had no snow. After a short panic attack about missing table decorations, which turned up elsewhere in the school, I joined a packed Café de Paris for pre-dinner drinks before we repaired to a slightly chilly Dining Hall for dinner.
The Development and Alumni Relations Office's primary role is to support the Head Master and Governors in realising the long-term plans of the school, by raising non-fee income, and by building a network of strong relationships among parents, staff, Old Brightonians and other friends and supporters.
