    We were surprised and delighted to be advised by American Express that they are willing to continue support of the London Do for the 6th year running. This year, the host hotel will be the Andaz Liverpool Street and, whilst there is a discounted group code available, you are also welcome to attend the event if staying on points or a different rate. Those who live locally are also welcome to attend parts of the event without staying in the hotel.

    The Saturday night dinner (the part sponsored by AMEX) will once again raise money for HUSK Cambodia. Our target is $6400 - enough to build four new houses for families living on less than $40/month. Hopefully we can match last year's success and raise in excess of this.

    If you would like to attend, please contact me for registration details

    I'll keep my fingers crossed. We are capacity-controlled so I recommend registering early if you plan to come.
