COCO hosted a London Charity Dinner on 20th April 2017 which successfully raised enough money to build and equip a girls' dormitory at Maasai Academy, located in a hard to reach area of Maasailand.

The one-off event was sponsored by property and construction company K2 Consultancy and hosted by law firm Wedlake Bell at its HQ in the heart of the City of London.

Check out some pictures from the fantastic night above.
