The Presidents Club says it is to close following allegations that hostesses were groped at its men-only annual charity dinner.

It said remaining funds would be distributed to children’s charities “in an efficient manner”.

There was widespread outrage following claims about the event by an undercover FT reporter, and charities said they would return past donations.

It also led to the resignation of a Department for Education director.

The only women at last Thursday’s event at the Dorchester Hotel in central London, which was attended by senior figures in business and finance, were hired hostesses.

Event compere David Walliams said he was “appalled” by the claims but had not witnessed anything.

The comedian and author tweeted that he was there in a “strictly professional capacity” and not as a guest.
