Flood Relief for Stonehaven

Readers of the blog may wish to know about an important fundraising event for the Stonehaven Community who endured terrible flooding recently;


We have a fundraising dinner a week on Saturday at Drumtochty Castle.
3 great chefs & amazing wines…

Roy Brett owns Ondine in Edinburgh, who is a seafood genius/guru who taught Rick Stein all he knows.
Nick Nairn needs no intro…
Calum Richardson owns the Bay – the UK’s #1 fish & chip shop.

Tickets are £100 per person and this includes all your food & drink needs for the evening.
Smart Dress please, starting at 7PM.

I have sourced all the wines and they are some of the best we sell.

We will be launching a beer on the evening brewed specially for the occasion and a version of it will be a key driver to raise further funds (it will differ in presentation from that specifically for guests at the dinner)

Everyone is working for free, products and services have been donated and all profit will directly help those who suffered from the recent flooding.

It’d be great to have you along too.
If this isn’t possible maybe you can spread the word..?

Tickets available from Sandy at Deeside Drinks Emporium, Banchory and Drumtochty Wines, Stonehaven or write to Sandy-e-mail deesidedrinks@live.co.uk
