10 YEARS OF THE EPSOM AND EWELL FOODBANK…

Posted by Devenia Besant on 14 Jun 2022

This year, 2022, the Epsom and Ewell Foodbank will have been open for 10 years which is an extremely sad thought and as the cost of living rises the amount of people having to use it will rise too.

The team at the foodbank work incredibly hard to support our local community and when they opened they had no idea they would still be running 10 years later.  I’m super proud to be working with them to put on a Gala fundraising dinner to acknowledge the work they do and to raise more awareness.

The Gala Dinner will be held at Epsom Downs Racecourse on Saturday 19th November 2022, 7pm-1am.

Tickets include:

– Welcome drinks
– Three course dinner
– Raffle
– Live music
– Entertainment

Attire: Black tie, lounge suits, and cocktail dresses.

You can purchase tickets here.
