The Worshipful Company of Security Professionals’ 2019 Spring Dance is to be held at the Rembrandt Hotel in London’s Knightsbridge on Saturday 2 March. Featuring performances by ‘Tina Turner’ and Irie J, tickets for the event are priced at £128 including VAT. The price covers a four-course dinner with wines. Proceeds from the auction on the night will be donated to the Worshipful Company of Security Professionals’ Charitable Trust and The Security Benevolent Fund.

The Security Benevolent Fund was established in 2007 to support men and women who are – or have been – employed in the security industry, but then encountered difficult times. It supports individuals like Rosie who’s a security officer. Due to an abusive marriage, Roise had to leave home with her six year-old child. It also helps people like James, who’s holding down a job as a shift officer while looking after his ageing Mum and Dad, but recently the washing machine had broken and he couldn’t afford to repair or replace it.

Those who apply to The Security Benevolent Fund for support are in immediate hardship and the Fund’s intervention, along with the work of the Trustees, can sometimes prove to be crucial. Without financial support, however, The Security Benevolent Fund’s ability to help will be reduced.

As well as offering financial assistance, The Security Benevolent Fund provides welfare advice, guidance and support for colleagues across the entire security sector while working alongside other charities where and when required.
