The Lincolnshire Rural Charities Dinner, 7th April 2016

On the 7th April 2016 we will once again be working together to host the second "Lincolnshire Rural Charities Dinner" in the magnificent setting of the Epic Centre on the Lincolnshire Showground.

The dinner is being held to celebrate the work of the four Lincolnshire rural charities- the Lincolnshire Rural Support Network, The Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance Charitable Trust, The Lincolnshire Agricultural Society Educational Committee and the Lincolnshire Agricultural Chaplaincy. These charites all provide vital services to the rural community and rely extensively on fund-raising for their continued operation. The dinner is an opportunity for companies and individuals to entertain their guests in style whilst helping to raise much needed funds.

We are delighted that some of our major Dinner Sponsors from 2014 return for the 2016 dinner. Our Champagne Reception, again sponsored by Limagrain, will precede a dinner, for 540 guests, of the best of Lincolnshire’s produce and sponsored by four sectors of Lincolnshire’s professional services: Brown and Co, Wilkin Chapman, Clydesdale Bank and Smailes Goldie Turner.

The menu for the second dinner has been designed by the well-known AA 5* Winteringham Fields Chef Patron, Colin McGurran, who will introduce each course with a presentation of information and anecdotes around the provenance of the ingredients. Colin has a renowned passion for local produce and provides his guests with a five star dining experience at Winteringham Fields.  We know Colin will do our Lincolnshire produce proud with his unique approach to producing excellent food. 

The event provides a major networking opportunity with an audience of key people from within Lincolnshire's food and farming supply chain and our aim will be to give our guests a unique and memorable night whilst supporting four great charities.
