Every eight hours someone will become permanently paralysed as a result of a spinal cord injury and they need our support. We provide vital services that give people practical skills and help rebuild their independence after a devastating spinal cord injury. Help Back Up to continue to provide these life-changing services by bringing along a table of colleagues, friends and family to our prestigious City Dinner on May 3 2018. Enjoy an unforgettable night in a spectacular venue, whilst also raising vital funds.

“It was a pleasure to be there at the Back Up City Dinner and I had a fantastic evening.”

Lewis Moody, England Rugby 2003 World Cup Winner and British and Irish Lion

Attracting guests from a wide range of City firms within the banking, insurance and legal sector, the 2017 City Dinner was a great success, raising an incredible £163,000 which has helped Back Up to continue transforming the lives of people with spinal cord injury. Past guests have included rugby union stars Ben Cohen, Lewis Moody and James Haskell, as well as Eric Lanlard, celebrity pâtissier, and Strictly Come Dancing star Kristina Rihanoff.
