Chef & Spice Fundraiser

Last month, we held our second annual fundraiser at Chef & Spice.

It was great to see considerably more guests than last year, which was reflected in the total amount raised - a whopping £1376. We were encouraged that so many people came and got stuck in, the raffle alone raised £212!

Friends and supporters of SOTE said “There was such a wonderful atmosphere” and “It was so great to be able to come together, eat delicious food and support such a worthy cause, the perfect event!".

The event was organised by Jane Hammond, a long term SOTE supporter. Jane said, "I enjoyed organising the event. The buffet style food was really good and staff at the restaurant were pleasant and friendly. Chef and Spice has a great formula for helping charities to fundraise.

Tickets were sold at a valuable £15 each. Chef & Spice only asked for £6 of each ticket to cover their costs, leaving £9 to go directly towards rural poor communities and project work in Tamil Nadu.

SOTE would like to thank Jane and friends for organising the event and supporting SOTE’s work India. Thanks also to everyone who attended and to Chef & Spice. We can’t wait for next year’s event!
