HONITON: Charity wine tasting with Suzy at Deer Park
Thursday, 06 March 2014
Susy Atkins, the BBC Saturday Kitchen resident wine expert, is joining forces with Deer Park Hotel in aid of Hospiscare.
She will lead a taste tour of South America at the hotel – and proceeds from the event will go to Hospiscare’s East Devon Day Hospice Appeal.
During the event – which takes place on Friday, March 14th – Susy will guide guests through ten tables of specially matched tapas dishes and wine, exploring the nuances of each grape and explaining the chemistry behind winning combinations.
Susy said: “There’s a real buzz around South American wines at the moment, not least in the run-up to the World Cup, and I’m delighted to present a range of exciting styles from this part of the world, in aid of a very good cause indeed - Hospiscare’s East Devon Day Centre Appeal.”
Part funded by an NHS Trust grant, plus generous support from sister charities, the new day hospice will be located in Honiton and feature spa-like treatment rooms, a large and comfortable patient lounge, a beautiful garden, plus educational facilities for the training of healthcare professionals and students, and access to palliative care specialists for support, advice or treatment.
Building work is set to start in the coming weeks and once completed the day hospice will serve the whole East Devon region as a haven of care for thousands of local people.
To ensure that the day hospice is as fully equipped as it can be, Hospiscare still needs to raise £230,000.
Deer Park Hotel MD Mark Godfrey said: “Good food and wine is a serious part of our business at Deer Park, and we are delighted to be hosting this fabulous event with Susy in aid of Hospiscare, which is one of our chosen charities this year.”
Tickets are £15 per person and are available from Hospiscare on 01392 688020.
