Wednesday 10 November 2010

On Thursday 18 November 2010 a charity lunch, organised by John Casson, took place in aid of South West adoption charity Families for Children.

Nearly 70 guests attended the event, which was held at Gidleigh Park, Dartmoor, Devon.

The guests enjoyed an inspirational talk from Falklands War survivor Simon Weston OBE and a delicious lunch created by two-Michelin-star chef, Michael Caines MBE.

A lively auction took place during the lunch. Guests were able to bid for items that included lunch with Oscar-winning actor Hayley Mills and a Gibson ‘Les Paul Junior’ guitar (the same model Keith Richards plays).

The auction was hugely successful and contributed to an incredible total of £11,000 being raised on this very memorable day.
