FUND RAISING WITH THE YFC
An end-of-year charity gala dinner for the Young Farmers Club – giving young people in the countryside a way of socialising with other young people in their areas and raising funds over dinner and dancing.
Guests enjoyed a standing canapé reception including smoked salmon with dill and crème fraîche, hoisin duck rillette, tempura-battered haddock with caper mayonnaise, plus honey and mustard sausages. Circular clothed tables styled and decorated in the Kentisbear Hall where guests were seated after the large carvery of roast beef, turkey, and honey roast hams. The mains course had a wealth of autumnal greens, buttered carrots, swede and cauliflower cheese, crispy roast potatoes, and Yorkshire puddings that would make a Yorkshire man/woman proud! To finish guests enjoyed a build-your-own style dessert with tiers of dark chocolate brownie, mini meringue swirls, and lemon drizzle cheesecake with cream. This was followed by tea and coffee, country dancing and presentation of the charity cheque of £5447.50 to Cancer Research UK.
