Communicaid was delighted to take part in the recent charity dinner and auction which took place in London. The event was organised in aid of three military charities that do so much for UK Armed Forces personnel: the Royal Navy & Royal Marines Charity, ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund as well as six local non-military charities.

The black tie event, whose main speaker was the former England cricketer Freddie Flintoff, saw a very active audience engage enthusiastically in the auction for a number of very special prizes. Key among the prizes on auction was a freefall parachute descent with the Red Devils and an invitation to the 2017 British Grand Prix at Silverstone.  Communicaid was equally up to the challenge with a prize of a day-trip to Paris with a difference. The lucky bidder won a unique cultural and learning experience:

A Day Trip to Paris with a Difference

Wander the hidden streets, squares and famous sights of Paris. Along the way, you will get to discover a side of Paris not often seen by tourists and discover the history of this unique city. Coffees, lunch and refreshments will all be scheduled in order for you to experience the café and eating culture of the City of Lights.

The prize* includes:

  • Eurostar standard day return ticket from London Saint Pancras to Paris Gare du Nord
  • Coffees and refreshments
  • Lunch
  • French course: Up to eight hours of French training as part of your guided tour of Paris
