Supper for Syria

3J5A51843J5A5184

On Friday 16th June, Kather’s Kitchen held a Syrian-themed fundraising supper at Monmouth Priory in aid of the Hands Up Foundation. This innovative British charity supports a number of critical projects in Syria including a health clinic in Aleppo, a school in Damascus for children with disabilities and three prosthetic limb clinics in Syria and Turkey.

A fantastic team of volunteer helpers in the kitchen (Claudia, Abbe, Rebecca and Catherine), combined with generous sponsorship of ingredients by McCarthy Marland, meant that we were able to donate 100% of the ticket money to the charity. Local companies also got behind our cause by giving some fabulous prizes for the raffle, which took an extra £640 on the night! With thanks to Ceci Paolo, Hus & Hem, Joules, Salt & Pepper, Waitrose, Estero Lounge, Pizza Express, Didier & Dandelion, Rossiters Bookshop, Thai Bistro at Whole Earth Café and Caffé Nero for their support. With thanks also to Millbrook Garden Centre for lending us the beautiful olive tree, which was the star of the evening!
