Fundraiser to celebrate 10 years of Tunbridge Wells food bank

LOCAL businesses in Tunbridge Wells are coming together to host a special evening of celebration for a food bank that has been working locally for the past decade.

Childrensalon and Cripps are holding an evening of ‘Dancing through the Decades’ to acknowledge the incredible work done by the Nourish Community Foodbank.

The charity has been operating for a whole decade, delivering food parcels to those in crisis across the Borough of Tunbridge Wells.

Denise Hamilton, Chief Corporate Affairs & Communications Officer at Childrensalon said: “Childrensalon is a proud supporter of Nourish Community Foodbank and the life-changing work they do in the Borough of Tunbridge Wells.

“With the cost-of-living crisis, Nourish is even more hard-pressed in its emergency support of the many people it helps and we hope this event helps raise much-needed funds for this incredible charity.”

The event will be held on Friday June 30 from 7pm-11pm at the secret rooftop Sky Lounge at Cripps’ headquarters on Mount Ephraim in Tunbridge Wells.

A spokesperson for Cripps said: “We are very happy to have the opportunity to make our Cripps’ offices available as the venue for the celebration of 10 years of Nourish.

“During those years Nourish has quickly become an essential part of the fabric of Tunbridge Wells and the surrounding areas in supporting local people in crisis.

“At Cripps we believe that we have a key role to play in supporting our local community and we are excited about exploring new ways the corporate sector can come together to make a meaningful difference.

Guests at the evening will be able to bid on auction lots, shop at the charity pop-up and try the famous Wheel of Fortune, all to a backdrop of performances by the Swift Bros and a DJ.

Dawn Stanford, Operations Director of Nourish said: “The charity has been operating for a whole decade delivering food parcels to those in emergency crisis in the Borough of Tunbridge Wells, so it seemed fitting to acknowledge the incredible work the charity and the community has achieved in those ten years to support those in need. “Not to mention, it’s ten years since I joined Nourish so that’s a big celebration, too!”

Tickets are £25, which includes canapés made by the chefs at TN1 Bar & Kitchen and a welcome drink, with all funds raised going directly to Nourish to help people in food poverty.
