Over £150k raised for flood relief at Jemima’s fundraiser

LONDON : English screenwriter and film producer Jemima Goldsmith announced on Thursday that £150k was raised for flood relief in Pakistan at a charity dinner at Benares Restaurant in London.

The event was held in aid of UNICEF’s Pakistan Floods Appeal and the Pakistan Environment Trust.

Jemima thanked the attendees for their generous donations for short and long term flood relief in the country. She also appreciated the support of the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan.

In a tweet, the former wife of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan also shared an online donation link to collect funds for UNICEF to help children affected by the floods in the country and for the Pakistan Environment Trust, which is actively combatting climate change in Pakistan.

Sadiq Khan also shared a photo alongside Jemima and her husband Ben Goldsmith, adding that the “fantastic evening” raised “vital funds” for Pakistan.

Writer and granddaughter of ex-premier and president Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, Fatima Bhutto, also attended the event.

Jemima appreciated her help with the fundraiser, highlighting that although news channels have “moved on”, millions of Pakistanis remain in need of support.
