Shaun Pascoe, Chief Executive and founder of Turn to Starboard

celebrated the success of the evening by highlighting

how the money raised will help to improve the lives of those

who served for their country. He said: “I am always astounded

by the generosity and warmth of those who support Turn to

Starboard and would like to say a huge thank you to everyone

who came along to the event, to everyone who donated the

fantastic auction prizes and to Drapers’ Hall for helping make

it such a memorable evening. The event was an incredible success

with an outstanding amount of money raised, with every

penny going towards helping to improve the lives of those

affected by military service.”
