Venue: The Athenaeum is a fabulous 5 star hotel on Piccadilly, which was built in the Victorian era and was noted by Charles Dickens for its extravagant interior. From Harrison Ford, Michael Douglas to Sandra Bullock, stars and VIPs use the Athenaeum. The film director Steven Spielberg even installed an edit suite in the adjoining apartment to his own and edited ET, First Encounters and Indiana Jones right here. The Athenaeum has been family-run since the 1990s and could not be more committed to providing an outstanding and friendly service, resisting any and every anonymous corporate tug. The Athenaeum is the essence of Englishness: discreet, personal, friendly, interesting, lavish, quirky, down to earth and brilliant. Website: http://www.athenaeumhotel.com/

Beneficiary: Community Action Nepal (CAN) is a UK based charity founded by Doug Scott CBE, who in 1975 made the first British ascent of Everest. CAN works in partnership with mountain villages and communities to provide local health, education, income generation, cultural and mountain porter welfare facilities. CAN projects are grass roots driven – with ideas coming directly from and supported by communities. Since 1998 CAN has established more than 50 community projects bringing benefits to 250,000 people.

Founder: Gaynor O’Flynn is an artist, founder of Beinghuman & curator of The British Chapter of Kathmandu International Art Festival. She has worked for many years in the Himalayas with the mountain people of Bhutan, India, Nepal & Tibet. Gaynor is deeply saddened by the recent tragedy in Nepal and created Artists For Nepal, when her friend, Sangeeta Thapa, Director Of The Siddartha Art Foundation, asked to help.
