Charity. It either begins by helping shave the taxes of the rich, or it begins by getting stuck in and supporting your local – excellent – cancer care centre, at Clatterbridge (now on the Wirral and over in Fazakerley too). It’s not too late to get involved with this year’s Come Dine At Mine event. Details follow:

“Support ‘Clatterbridge your cancer centre’ by taking part in Come Dine @ Mine, on Saturday 24 March.

You provide the dinner and we’ll provide your party pack to help plan your perfect dinner party evening. All you need to do is ask your guests for a donation on the evening and help us to raise much needed cash for ‘Clatterbridge your cancer centre’ – the only charity that raises money to directly benefit Clatterbridge cancer patients across the region.

The Come Dine @ Mine Party Pack contains everything you’ll need to support local cancer patients whilst having a fantastic night in with friends including:

Invites, Menu Card, Place cards, Donation envelope to collect your diners’ donations, Gift Aid form (just fill out your details and we’ll be able to make your kind donations go even further).

To register for your party pack get in touch on 0151 482 7948 or email fundraising@ccotrust.nhs.uk.

Share your party photos for a chance to win. Join us on Facebook.com/ClatterbridgeOfficial on Saturday 24 March and share your party with our fellow diners.

Upload photos of your evening and the best photo, as voted for by our followers, will win a fantastic meal for two with a bottle of wine at Ellie’s Bistro in Greasby.”

So if your soufflé has risen to perfection or your centrepiece is a work of art, take a photo and you can celebrate your dinner party success by taking a night off from cooking.

‘Clatterbridge your cancer center’ is dedicated to providing outstanding cancer care to around 26,000 patients each year at their centre in Wirral, their specialist radiotherapy centre in Aintree and at the network of chemotherapy clinics in local hospitals across the region. The money you raise at your Come Dine @ Mine party will help to continue providing world-class treatment, care, support and facilities as well as funding pioneering cancer research. Get involved.
