Calling all gin lovers! To start a new fundraising year for the Mayor of Knutsford, this July we have a tasty event that is guaranteed to give you the Friday feeling and kick off your weekend the right way.
Recently elected Town Mayor, Cllr Mike Houghton, said he was delighted to be announcing his first fundraising event in support of the Mayor’s Charities.
“The Mayoress is known to be partial to an occasional sip of gin and for those who share her passion I will be hosting a Gin Tasting Evening. It won’t be just a tasting session as our host, Ian Cass, will be taking you on a journey to celebrate everything that is gin and we will be sampling the produce of some of our finest local distillers, including Camino Gin, Spirit of George, Hunters Gin and Marmalade Old Tom from Pocketful of Stones.” Mike added.
The evening will include five gin cocktails and food with a cash bar for those who want more. Numbers are strictly limited so be sure to book yours as soon as possible and feel free to invite your friends to make up a table.
The proceeds for the event will kickstart the mayor’s fundraising and support his chosen charities: Knutsford Scouts and Knutsford Men’s Shed.
The Knutsford Scouts do fantastic work in developing life skills for the young community of Knutsford by encouraging healthy and active lifestyles, yet they receive no outside support and so are always in need of fundraising and donations. Also, this year, the mayor is raising funds for the opening of a Knutsford Men’s Shed, which would be a branch of the Men’s Sheds Association, a charity that is working hard to provide spaces for men who are suffering from loneliness.
The event takes place on Friday 1st July at Bexton Primary School. Tickets are £30 per person and bookings can be made by contacting Michelle Bate on 01565 653 929 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
