The big charity breakfast

More than £110,000 was raised for World Jewish Relief projects from its annual business breakfast, at which private equity boss Sir Ronald Cohen was guest speaker. Talking at length, and without notes, to the 250-strong audience at the Sheraton Park Lane, Sir Ronald discussed his career and his desire to develop the concept of social entrepreneurship, whereby the business community gives back to society. The business breakfast committee, chaired by Lawrence Gergel, has now raised over £500,000.
