The Frontline Fund Annual Fundraising Dinner for Local Producers

Talk Wednesday 28 September 2016, 7:30 PM

Anthony Loyd, Christina Lamb, Martin Bell, Giles Duley and Caroline Wyatt invite you to the annual fundraising dinner for the Frontline Fund.

The evening will begin with a drinks reception in the Clubroom followed by a sit down dinner 8.30pm served in the Forum.

The Frontline Fund (formerly the Fixers’ Fund) is an adjunct charity of the Frontline Club which offers emergency financial assistance to local producers and their families in situations of proven distress, such as inprisonment, injury, forced exile, or death.

It was initiated by Jon Lee Anderson in 2007 following the murder of Ajmal Naqshbandi in Afghanistan.

The Fund’s disbursements are intended as a first-stop expression of material solidarity by the Frontline Club and its members on behalf of some of the most invaluable, yet vulnerable, of media workers.

Without the support of local producers, foreign journalists could not operate in the field. They are the unsung heroes of the industry and too often pay the highest price, remaining in the field once the foreign journalists have left.

Join us to support this important cause. Donations to the Frontline Fund can also be made online through the following link:
