On 26th February St Edward hosted a Wine Tasting event and auction at their Kensington High Street Marketing Suite. They were raising money for their designated charity, Trinity Hospice.
Around 70 people gathered in the Marketing Suite for the evening, with a large variety of both old world and new world wines on offer to be tried, complete with two sommeliers. After the wine tasting had drawn to a close, St Edward's Operations Director described the partnership between St Edward and Trinity House Hospice, followed by a compelling speech from Clare Montagu, Trinity Hospice's Chief Operating Officer.
The auction included some amazing items, including signed prints of Ricky Gervais and Jimmy Carr, a weekend for two at a 5 star Millers Cottage in Cheshire, and a hand signed t-shirt by the 1966 World Cup legends, amongst other items. A magnum of Davy's Celebration Champagne was also up for grabs in a raffle, which raised £685 alone. In total, the evening raised £8,640 for Trinity Hospice.
