The JAGS Foundation is 10 years old this year, and to mark the anniversary they are staging a fund-raising gala dinner at City Hall next month.
JAGS is a Croydon-based organisation which seeks to reduce and eliminate violent crime among south London’s youngsters.
It was set up in 2007 by Tracey Ford in memory of her son James Andre Godfrey Smartt-Ford, who was killed in a packed Streatham ice rink, in front of more than 300 people. No one has ever been arrested for this murder.
The 10th Anniversary of JAGS Foundation dinner, staged on Friday, November 17 at a prestigious venue on the South Bank next to Tower Bridge, will feature entertainment, including spoken word, live music and guest speakers, as well as a three-course meal, and start with a Champagne reception at 7pm.
“This is an incredibly special occasion that we want to share with everyone who has seen us through the last 10 years,” Ford says.
Tickets are £50 (plus a booking fee), with all profits going towards the work of JAGS.
