Charity wine dinner at Headland Hotel raises £5,000 for Cornish communities

Thanks to the generosity of The Headland’s owners John and Carolyn Armstrong, and the hotel’s suppliers, guests at a fabulous charity wine dinner were treated to a mouthwatering menu of local, seasonal dishes, created especially for the event by executive head chef Chris Archambault, along with a matching wine flight by Nigel Logan, or a non-alcoholic drinks flight designed by The Cornish Tea Company.

Held in its two rosette-awarded Samphire Restaurant. The evening began with welcome drinks, canapés, and entertainment by jazz singer Callum Flew.

Foundation Chief Executive, Tamas Haydu, says, “We are very grateful to the Headland Hotel and their suppliers for making this evening possible. £5,000 is a great total to raise and is much needed in Cornwall in current times.  In addition, to hosting the Dinner, the Headland Hotel are members of our Business Club and have established their own Community Fund, recently awarding £8,000 to local community projects.”
