Dine & Donate: It’s still not too late!

Flowers By Enchantment. Index Mag hamper winner

Whether it be a breakfast, themed lunch or spring BBQ, host a Dine & Donate and raise some much needed funds for Tree of Hope to support seriously ill and disabled children all over the UK.

As media sponsor for Tree of Hope during 2018 – the charity’s 25th year – we’re are asking you to take part and to help raise a total of £25,000. Each person who signs up holds a lunch, brunch, dinner, afternoon tea or even a cocktails and canape party to bring people together and guests make a donation to their host, for Tree of Hope, in return for their meal.

Mandy Pulsford (pictured) from Flowers by Enchantment in Tonbridge, was one of the many people who attended the launch of Tree of Hope’s Dine & Donate campaign at The Old Fire Station, Tonbridge, back in January. Mandy was so inspired by the campaign that she signed up on the night to host an event. By doing this, she was entered into a prize draw to win a fabulous hamper kindly donated by INDEX magazine. Mandy was presented with her prize by Kate Bourne, Fundraising Manager at Tree of Hope and was thrilled to have been chosen as the winner.

Mandy and her colleague Claire are planning on hosting a coffee morning in May to raise funds for Tree of Hope’s Dine and Donate campaign. They however wanted to start fundraising straight away, so Claire has gathered a collection of her cookbooks together which they are selling in their florist.

Since the launch of Dine and Donate, 52 people have signed up to host an event from individual people through to companies, including MCMnet, Neptune Tonbridge, Thomson Snell and Passmore and Marks & Spencer Tunbridge Wells.

Tonbridge Old Fire Station was the first to rise to Tree of Hope’s challenge to host an event. Prepared by MasterChef winner Daniel Britten and actor and Chef Jimi Mistry, guests were treated to a five-course menu, which included pheasant and quail terrine, picked grapes, candied pecans and maple glaze crouton. Dessert consisted of Earl Grey set cream, blood orange jelly, honeycombe, beetroot meringue and a selection of English cheeses, chutney and crackers which finished the meal off perfectly.
