The Dot Com Children’s Foundation was launched at the Home Office by volunteers from the civil service lead by the Chief Accountant to the Home Office, Mark Wilson.
More than 30 volunteers signed up to support the charity to help founders Sharon Doughty and Neil Evans to reach more children around the country.
Kathryn Blair, Chair of the trustees, attended the event with Len Goodman’s son who was also a trustee and the audience was treated to the most fantastic Strictly display by Kristina Rihanoff and Robin Windsor. The event raised the first funds ever put into the charity and Chief Constable Sara Thornton who was then Chair of the National Police Chief Council participated in the fun and even the dance lesson!
Children from Croydon who were ambassadors for the Dot Com programme made a speech to tell the adults why all children should have access to the programme.
