The bar that got me was this rather tasty three layer gianduja bar. If you don’t know, gianduja is a blend of hazelnut paste and chocolate. It is sometimes the basis of chocolate & nut spreads and sometimes the filling for bonbons, but it can also be made firm enough to produce a bar on its own.
The John King brain Tumour Foundation was delighted to host a Gala Dinner at Claridge's Hotel on Thursday 18th October to help raise much-needed funds for medical equipment for St George’s Trust.
The evening commenced with a Champagne Reception followed by a sumptuous three-course dinner specially designed by Claridge’s Executive Chef Martyn Nail.
Jeffrey Archer auctioned an array of money-can’t-buy experiences, fine art, sports, wine, and food prizes and there was an amazing musical performance after dinner.
The Gala Dinner gave us the opportunity to meet some inspirational people and hear from our Patron Mr. Henry Marsh who was Consultant Neurosurgeon at St George’s Hospital. He has written some fascinating books on the life of a brain surgeon and provided a unique and heart-rending insight into his work and how vital funding and research can save lives.
A big thank you to everyone who helped support such an amazing evening at our first fundraising ball.
Together we can save lives!
