Authentic Furniture Raise £350 so far for Sponsored Charity of the Year, Make-A-Wish Foundation® UK
On Saturday 18th January from 2pm – 7pm Authentic Furniture treated visitors to a charity afternoon at their showroom at Peak Shopping Village, Rowsley, in aid of their chosen charity for 2014, Make-A-Wish Foundation® UK.
Visitors to the event were treated to live music courtesy of singer/songwriter, Caleb Keenan from Staffordshire, as well as entertainment from magician, Anthony Jacquin, who ‘wowed’ the crowds with card and mind tricks.
Head Chef Daniel Laycock, from the stunning Peak Edge Hotel, gave up his time to demonstrate his skill in Authentic Furniture’s handmade English Shaker kitchen, creating two delicious dishes, a beetroot salad and duck with carrot puree, both of which were devoured by keen onlookers. Dan has previously worked in Michelin star restaurants under renowned Chefs such as Gordon Ramsey, and for the Waldorf Collection in their restaurant in Versailles, France, the home of classic cooking. Dan was delighted to have the opportunity to come and support the event and said:
“Peak Edge Hotel is very mindful of our local community, so it was great to be asked to come down to Authentic Furniture to support their charity event for Make A Wish Foundation® UK. I’ve been cooking for 12 years now, starting as a pot washer and working my way through the ranks. I love sharing my knowledge with others and cooking demos are a great way of doing this, so I was thrilled that Authentic Furniture asked me along. ”
Dan also shared his philosophy on food and cooking.
“With access to the internet and so many cookery shows on our TV’s, people are a lot more food aware now. They want to know more about their food, where it’s from and learn all about the various ways of using the same ingredients, which is great for us Chefs as we find ourselves with a captivated audience. The best thing about cooking is that you never get bored. If you’re tired of cooking the same dish, then change it or go on to make another!”
Whilst enjoying the show, guests also took advantage of Authentic Furniture’s January sale, with 20% off all their furniture and accessories (excluding Little Greene Paint & guest artworks) until the end of January.
The afternoon raised a total of £350 for Make-A-Wish Foundation® UK, the leading charity that grants magical wishes to children and young people fighting life-threatening conditions. A raffle was held with fantastic prizes kindly donated by local businesses and organisations. Prizes included Authentic Furniture Hamper worth £256, a designer fabric or wallpaper voucher worth £100 courtesy of Ruth Marshall Interior Design, a Peak Shopping Village voucher worth £50, an overnight stay for two at a choice of two Cheshire village pubs including breakfast, courtesy of Kalton and Barlow, a Steak and Ale meal for two at Marco Pierre White’s The Black Boy Inn, a £20 voucher for Costa Coffee in Bakewell, and a dozen fresh eggs brought in by Gaynor Lewis from Foxgloves in Rowsley.
Joanne Micklewright, Head of Wishgranting at Make-A-Wish, said:
“We are thrilled to have been chosen as Authentic Furniture’s nominated charity for 2014. Each year more and more children are turning to us to have their magical wish granted. This year we hope to grant over 1,000 wishes, so Authentic Furniture’s support really is invaluable.”
As Authentic Furniture creative, Tim Lowry explains:
“We decided to support Make-A-Wish because the work they do is vital to the happiness of those children and their families living with life-threatening conditions. I have no doubt that all our customers will get behind us and make 2014 a great year of fundraising.
“It was great to see the showroom buzzing and we’re planning some great events throughout the year, so watch this space for more details. Our best wishes go out to the families that Make-A-Wish support, and we hope the funds we raise this year helps to make the wishes of those brave children come true.”
Please note the next Make-a-Wish fundraising event will be taking place on Sunday 2nd March. The theme will be ‘the perfect batter’. Celebrity Yorkshire Pudding guru, Chris Blackburn, made famous by his debut in ITV’s Food Glorious Food and appearances in Country House Sunday and the One Show, will be coming to show off his culinary talents and share his top tips on getting the perfect Yorkshire Pudding. Tickets will be £5 with all proceeds going to the charity and will include roast beef canapé’s courtesy of local farmer Wrights Farm Shop Darley Dale. For family fun there will be a pancake race and a sponsored pancake tossing competition and plenty of pancakes to feast on throughout the day.
