Fancy a three course meal at a top London club cooked by “celebrity chefs” including Lifesearch chief Tom Baigrie, the Institute of Financial Planning’s Nick Cann and Money Marketing editor Paul McMillan? ……… No?? Well don’t stop reading just yet.
The 2nd Annual Financial Services Honesty Dinner takes place at the London Capital Club on Monday September 17. After raising £19,000 last year for Help For Heroes, this year’s event is looking to raise money for youth charity the Brathay Trust.
Other chefs on the night will include 7IM’s Justin Urquhart-Stewart, Skandia’s Peter Mann, Investment Quorum’s Lee Robertson, Beaufort Group’s Alan Easter and Radcliffe & Newland’s Jason Ransted.
Hostesses for the evening include Money Marketing head of news Nicole Blackmore, Chelsea Financial Services’ Sam Slator and Investment Quorum’s Petronella West.
The 150 guests are also promised some “top secret but spectacular” entertainment and can participate in an auction with some top-class items on offer.
The concept is pretty simple: You eat the food and then pay what you think it is worth. The club has volunteered the space for free, everyone involved is giving up their time for free and butchers, greengrocers and bakers have been suitably blackmailed into giving us free food. Therefore every penny will be going to the charity.
Spaces are limited and available to bigger groups or individuals. For more details on reservations email Alison Masson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
About the Brathay Trust: The charity has been inspiring young people since 1946. Some of those it works with today may be experiencing difficulties in their lives. By engaging with them Brathay inspires them and helps in developing their personal and social skills. The Trust also increases their critical awareness and raise their aspirations, which enhances their life chances.
Its aim is to become a leading charity that inspires children and young people to engage positively in their communities.
Brathay Trust delivers integrated community and residential programmes that help young people to re-engage with education, have a voice in their community, become peer mentors and young leaders, and avoid or move away from criminal activity. Please see its website for more details.
Mail on Sunday personal finance editor Jeff Prestridge has already raised over £80,000 for the charity this year by undertaking 10 marathons in 10 days around Lake Windermere and is hoping to raise £100,000.
