The Leader's Group
The Leader's Group is a donor club of the Conservative Party and is described as the 'premier supporter group'. To become a member of the group an annual membership fee of £50,000 must be paid. As a member of The Leader's Group you can expect to 'join David Cameron and other senior figures from the Conservative Party at dinners, post-PMQ lunches, drinks receptions, election result events and important campaign launches'. 
Set up in 2003, David Cameron's Leader’s Group 'has grown to become a key part of Tory fundraising' according to the Daily Mail, which revealed in January 2014 that the elite dining group had donated more than £43.1 million to the party since 2001. Secrecy surrounding its events has raised suspicions; no list of members has ever been published nor details of the topics discussed ever revealed. The Conservatives continue to refuse to release public information about the group beyond details of those who have attended the events every quarter since 2012.
The chairman of the Group is Howard Leigh.
