"After last year's event I didn’t think I could top it , but I have some very good friends in the whisky industry who came to the fore once again.

Mr Colin Dunn (Diageo) and Mr Phil Huckle (Perno Ricard) both came up from London, representing two of the biggest drinks companies on the planet, providing the whiskies for the evening - and the entertainment.

Phil opened up the tasting with some light hearted banter and that set the tone for the evening with Colin responding likewise - made for a brilliant night .

63 people attended and Tim and Tracey were on hand to serve the food at the end of the tasting and serving beers at the bar.  

 

It all made for a smooth and enjoyable occasion .

This year 3 donations were made to Chris Westwood Charity for Disabled Children , Living Springs , and New Cross Hospital Cardiac Unit .

On the evening £2110 was raised - which is a fantastic effort.

Nickolls and Perks very kindly provided the glass ware for the evening so huge word of thanks to them and the Old Edwardian Club for hosting us again.

 

Thanks to all"
