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.
