​Clapham & Collinge networking dinner raises £850 for chosen charity.

We were delighted to host a special Grapevine Networking Dinner on Tuesday 2nd October at Norwich's Warwick Street Social. We secured this great venue and a superb menu as both Warwick St Social and ourselves are supporters of local charity The Benjamin Foundation.

This special Grapevine dinner gave guests the opportunity to sample a fine dining experience with modern British cuisine curated by Chef Patron Daniel Smith. Our special 5 course taster menu was put together for our guests to enjoy during the private dining experience with individual courses introduced by Chef Daniel Smith.

During the evening there was the opportunity for guests to support The Benjamin Foundation with a raffle and to finish the evening the opportunity to bid in an auction for the services of Head Chef of The Ingham Swan & Warwick Street Social, Alex Care (Norfolk Food & Drink Chef of the year 2017) to cook a private dinner for up to 8 guests at the auction winner's home, generously donated by Warwick Street Social.

With the support of Warwick Street Social and all attendees, we are delighted to have raised £850 for The Benjamin Foundation.

Chris Elliott, Marketing and Fundraising Manager for The Benjamin Foundation said "The event was a real success for our charity as it helped raise money to support our work locally with children, young people and families as well as enabling us to connect with many supporters in a sociable atmosphere. It continues the long-standing relationship we have with Clapham & Collinge who are much more than just our legal partners".

"I am absolutely delighted that we have been able to raise a considerable amount for the Benjamin Foundation at this event, and give them the opportunity to talk to guests about the work they do locally. This has been Clapham & Collinge's largest Grapevine event to date, none of this would have been possible without the support of our guests and Warwick Street Social" said Andrea Smith, Marketing Executive.
