In addition to emphasizing the important bilateral contributions between Britain and Southern California, BritWeek offers critical support to important charities.

In 2008, BritWeek honored LA's BEST (Better Educated Students for Tomorrow), a nationally recognized after-school education, enrichment and recreation program serving more than 26,000 children with the greatest needs and fewest resources throughout the City of Los Angeles.

This year BritWeek is pleased to support the efforts of Malaria No More, a non-profit, non-governmental organization dedicated to ending deaths from the disease in Africa. Endorsed by world leaders and global organizations and founded by News Corporation President & COO Peter Chernin and United Nations Special Envoy for Malaria Ray Chambers, Malaria No More has raised millions and made tremendous strides in educating the public and saving lives. Prime Minister Tony Blair will be guest of honor at the April 21st BritWeek Gala Dinner in Beverly Hills benefiting this important cause. June Sarpong, one of the UK's most popular television presenters, will emcee the evening, which will feature a live performance by Daughtry!

Join us on April 28th for the BritWeek special screening of Poetry is in the Streets, an exhibition of stunning photographs by Gavin Thomas Aldred (GTA) of surprising and unusual wall art from around the world. 50% of proceeds from this event will be donated to the UK-based charity Teenage Cancer Trust.(TCT)
