Join Vinson & Elkins and 10×10 Philanthropy for an evening packed full of entertainment, complimentary food & drink and a very exciting raffle and auction.

V&E is aligned with the 10×10 model to promote effective and high-impact grassroots philanthropy. Through this event, V&E will be supporting three grassroots charities to raise awareness and funds to enable them to continue carrying out the invaluable work they are doing for the community. The chosen charities are committed to taking strong and affirmative action to help women, children and young people in need.

Tickets to the event are £60. On arrival, you’ll receive 2 x pledge tokens of £30. Each charity will tell you more about themselves on the night and then you decide who your donation goes to – all part of the 10×10 fun! Can’t decide where to place your donation? Don’t worry, there’s also a chance to buy more pledge tokens on the night!

We can’t wait to see you there!

The Vavengers is a survivor, female and migrant-led organisation working to end Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting and all other forms of Violence Against Women and Girls.

Our work takes 3 forms:

1: Community outreach hubs in the UK that support vulnerable women and girls’ physical, psychological, and legal needs with a focus on FGM/C and VAWG

2: Educational workshops about FGM/C and VAWG with businesses and organisations, including healthcare professionals

3: National and international campaigns to ensure FGM/C and VAWG is on the political and social agenda

We are The Vavengers. We listen, we support and we take action. We educate, collaborate, aid and empower. We are a survivor-led organisation, standing with and for every woman affected by Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting (FGM/C) and other forms of Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) – we will help end it together.

Team Up is an educational charity that tutors disadvantaged children in maths and English, helping them to double their academic progress, gain confidence, and improve their future prospects. Team Up was founded on the core principle of finding inspirational volunteer role models who we train to help increase the attainment and aspirations of school children in order to change young lives for the better.

We operate across multiple Greater London boroughs in numerous schools providing tutoring in maths and English. In addition to the work we do with children from low-socio economic backgrounds, we also offer continuous support to our wide range of volunteers. We do this by providing them with a range of opportunities to gain leadership and employability skills in an effort to repay their tireless efforts and give back to the local community.

Team Up works to reduce the widening attainment gap in education by helping underachieving disadvantaged pupils double their expected progress and improve their future prospects. We do this through inspirational volunteer tutors, with the support of qualified teachers and facilitators.

Drive Forward is a registered charity specialising in supporting care-experienced children and young people in London aged 16 – 26. Growing up in children’s homes and foster care can have a devastating effect on an individual’s life chances. Research shows that educational attainment, levels of health and wellbeing, and employment prospects are all significantly lower while instances of homelessness, criminal behaviour and teenage pregnancy are considerably higher.
The Drive Forward Foundation empowers care-experienced young people to take control of their lives through sustainable and fulfilling employment, education and training. Established in 2010, they have developed a proven model based on trusted relationships and a trauma-informed working approach.
Working with up to 700 individuals a year, they offer a mix of tailored 1-2-1 support, intensive
employability skills training, exclusive opportunities provided by a range of employer partners, as well as in-work mentoring support and a bespoke counselling service.


We are so grateful for all of our partners who play a crucial role in ensuring we can continue to build 10×10
