Royal garden party honours Appco client the British Red Cross

A team from Appco Group head office and owners from the Group’s marketing network were invited to
a special British Red Cross event at Buckingham Palace for their part in breaking the world record of
signing up more than 117,000 regular-giving donors in 2013.

More than 5,000 guests attended a royal garden party held to celebrate 150 years of humanitarian work. Guests included fundraisers from the British Red Cross and Appco employees and owners.

The Prince of Wales and British Red Cross CEO Sir Nicholas Young greeted guests, who were entertained by dancers and singers.

“It was great to see the British Red Cross family in full force and to witness how many people are involved with the charity’s campaigns and fundraising,” said Dominic Lester-George, Business Manager at Appco Group Support. “It was a fantastic experience and it was an honour to attend such a prestigious event.”

The Prince of Wales has been president of the British Red Cross since 2003.
