I really believe that small organisations with big ambitions are often the ones who make more long-term, innovative and authentic change, and Jon and I both immediately thought of War Child as the charity we wanted to support. Knowing that the celebrations were making a difference to others brought a really special atmosphere to the day and to everyone involved.
