Taste of Leamington provides charity boost

Leamington Editorial 22nd Oct, 2023   0

A TASTE of Leamington raised over £4,400 for Parkinson’s UK and the Leamington-based Flourish charity.

The annual Leamington Rotary Club culinary dining event, sponsored by Warwick Glass, organisers, saw some 200 people enjoy a bite to eat at town restaurants.

The diners met in All Saints Church for a wine and drinks reception before setting off in groups on a surprise tour around the town’s leading independent restaurants, where each course was taken at a different venue.

Organiser and Rotarian Linda John, who lost her father to Parkinson’s in 2019, said: ‘’A Taste of Leamington 2023 was another huge success.

“This event gets bigger and better each year! The support of the independent restaurants in the town is crucial and we would like to thank them for their willingness to help make the evening a success, not just financially but also by creating a warm and inviting atmosphere for our diners.”

“We also extend sincere gratitude to our sponsors, Warwick Glass, whose continual financial support of this event is amazing and gives us the support to put on a great evening for our diners.

“Being able to raise funds for much-needed research to stop people having to suffer with Parkinson’s, the way my father and our family did, is really important to me.

“On top of that we have been able to donate to Flourish, who do amazing work supporting the growing number of young girls ten to 18 who feel isolated, anxious, sad or have low self-esteem. And all this achieved whilst having a great night out. It’s an amazing event and we look forward to hosting our 7th next year.”

Taverna Meraki, Baserri, Otto Turkish Kitchen, Eleven, The Emperors, Paprika Club, Sabai Sabai, Carisma Tapas and Oscars all took part in the evening.
