Fundraising at The Leaf

Back in June St Katherine's held a fundraising dinner in The Leaf in aid of local charity Penny Brohn. We invited the three celebrity chefs Josh Eggleton, Louise McCrimmon and Toby Gritten to join us, each one cooked a course with our hospitality students. 

The evening was a sell out success and raised over £5000 for the charity. Incredibly generously, Penny Brohn agreed to give 10% of these funds back to The Leaf to spend on new catering equipment. On 23rd October Nigel Pushman, one of the charity's trustees, was welcomed back to The Leaf to present a cheque to some of the hospitality students, Mr Mingo-West and Mr Humphreys. What a triumph for everyone involved!
