The Journalists’ Charity reception at the Embassy of Ireland will be held this year on Tuesday May 23rd.

Described as one of the best parties in town, the reception will be hosted by Ireland’s Ambassador to the UK Dan Mulhall, who has been a strong supporter of the charity since taking up his appointment in London in 2013.

As has become a tradition, a senior member of the government will also attend.

The Irish Embassy reception has become one of the highlights in the calendar for supporters of the charity which was founded in 1864 by, among others, Charles Dickens. It helps journalists who face difficulty with advice, grants and other forms of financial assistance.

Jill Palmer, the charity’s chairman, said: “We are very grateful to the Ambassador and all the staff at the Embassy for hosting the reception again this year. It is always a highly enjoyable event and does a great deal both to build the charity’s profile and spread the word about the help we can give to those in need.”

The reception will start at 6pm and end at 8pm.
