Berkeley Homes South East London organised their Third Annual Wine Tasting and Auction event on 7th May 2015. It was held at Brewers Hall in the heart of the City of London, home of the Brewers Company since 1403.
All proceeds raised from the event were donated to the Change Foundation and channelled into Street Elite, the flagship youth development programme delivered by the Change Foundation and the Berkeley Foundation. 50 guests across seven tables competed in a fine wine challenge managed by Jascots. This was followed by a three course dinner and auction. Prizes included, a Porsche track day, a box at Ascot, and a stunning piece of Chinese art.
Street Elite is a training for work initiative. It uses sport, mentoring and youth engagement to motivate young people who are currently not in education, employment or training.
The programme offers intensive support to people who are often living on the edge of gangs and crime. It helps them to gain the confidence and skills they need to move on into work or further education.
