Still chance to sample delights of star chefs at Dalton food fundraiser
Last updated at 12:29, Tuesday, 10 February 2015
MOST people, if offered the opportunity to eat food prepared by the UK’s best cooks and raise money for worthy local causes at the same time, wouldn’t find it a difficult decision to make.
In fact, the only hardship facing guests on the third night of this year’s Lake District Farmers Armstrong Family Charitable Trust celebrity chef event will be choosing between the dishes on offer.
And, with tickets still available for the evening of Sunday February 2 at Clarence House Country Hotel and Restaurant in Dalton, there’s still time to book a seat at the table.
The finale of the three-night cooking extravaganza will see Michelin-starred sibling duo, the Galvin brothers, and Gordon Ramsay’s protege, Angela Hartnett, sharing a kitchen.Each will prepare a separate dish across three courses and guests will have the enviable pleasure of choosing their preference.
When the gourmet expertise of these three world renowned chefs combine, the menu is enough to make even the most seasoned diner’s mouth water.
What’s more, diners will enjoy their meal all the more knowing every penny raised by the event will go right back into their community.
Victoria Barber-Bolam, managing director of Clarence House, said she was delighted to support this year’s event because of the regular donations made by Lake District Farmer’s Armstrong Family Charitable Fund to local groups and organisations.
The fund, a legacy of popular Barrow businessman Ray Armstrong, gave out £27,000 in donations last year.
So far in 2014, the fund has handed £1,000 to volunteers at Dalton Drill Hall as they campaign to renovate the heating system.
Other groups which have benefited from the fund include Furness Young Carers, Age UK Barrow and Harrison’s Fun Fund.
Mrs Barber-Bolam said: “All proceeds from the ticket sales of this event go to local charities, which in turn help to improve all aspects of out community.
“These are the types of donations that have been made – donations impacting independent families and charities which change lives.”
Tickets for the evening event, on Sunday February 2, which will include a champagne reception, are £100. To buy a ticket call Sarah Earley on 01229 870 168.
