35th Anniversary Gala Dinner

On 7th April, Safe Child Thailand will be hosting its 35th Anniversary Gala Dinner at London’s Royal Garden Hotel, Kensington. The evening will feature top-class entertainment, a three course meal and an auction of fantastic prizes.

In 2018, Safe Child Thailand celebrates a milestone in its history of supporting vulnerable children in Thailand. It’s been 35 years since our small charity was first established as the Pattaya Orphanage Trust in 1982. Since then, Safe Child Thailand, formerly Thai Children’s Trust, has grown from a single man raising funds to support just one project in Thailand to a fully registered charity working with thousands of children across the country.

Our Gala Dinner is an opportunity to bring together our invaluable supporters, friends and partners for an evening of celebration and fundraising. We hope you can join us.
