Drinkslover Wine Tasting

BY: Emma Russell

CATEGORY: News, Press

Drinkslover Wine Tasting event; a unique evening which raised over £3000.
Set in a private garden square surrounded by 1850’s artists’ studios, the 70 guests were greeted with a welcome glass of bubbly before wine expert Riki Hutchinson told his audience about each of the 8 wines they were served, together with a constant flow of delicious canapés.

The profit from this event will be donated to one of the LDN Connect social groups: Our Lives. This is a new project for older people with learning disabilities and dementia meeting weekly, to look at reminiscence and well-being. Thank you to everyone who attend and made this event a great success.

The finger food was prepared and served by the Yhum Yhums with advice from Stephen Carter Chef of Boodles Club. The Yhum Yhums are a team of service users who, after attending our ‘Come Dine with Us’ course where they learnt food hygiene and cooking skills, have set up a social enterprise catering service for events.

The Westminster Society is calling for health equality for people with learning disabilities to ensure they have access to regular Covid-19 testing, and that vaccines are made available on an equitable basis alongside people living in elderly and nursing care facilities.

Our CEO has written to Helen Whately Minister of State for Social Care asking for a change in policy – please see her letter here.
