Wooden Spoon Kent exceeds fundraising target at Pre six nations dinner

Last Friday night, just before the highly anticipated Six Nations kick-off, Wooden Spoon Kent played host to a spectacular pre-Six Nations dinner. The event brought together 98 enthusiastic individuals from partner clubs across Kent, creating a memorable evening for all involved.

The historic Shepherd Neame Faversham brewery situated in the medieval market town of Faversham in Kent, and recognized as Britain’s oldest brewer added a touch of historical charm to an already spectacular evening.

The dinner, an annual tradition, featured a sit-down meal with each dish representing one of the Six Nations:
Glamorgan Pattie with apple compote – Wales
Beef bourguignon, pomme puree, Vichy carrots – France (vegan option included)
Irish coffee panna cotta with whiskey cream – Ireland
Colston Basset Stilton with honey and walnuts – England
Tablet – Scotland

The success of the event surpassed expectations, raising an impressive £7,355.00, exceeding last year’s target by several thousand pounds. As Master of Ceremony, Adger Brown’s dynamic presence played a crucial role in energizing the audience and boosting product sales during the auction. Contributions from Richard Russ and Mick Skinner, who generously donated auction prizes, significantly contributed to the overall fundraising success. Mick Skinner also graciously posed for photos with the lucky winners of the Skinner memorabilia.
Wooden Spoon Kent can be proud of this outstanding achievement, as the funds raised will undoubtedly make a meaningful impact to children and young people facing disadvantage in Kent.
