Auction Against Hunger 2018

On Tuesday evening we packed up our Horse Box bar and made our way down to Borough Market in London for this year’s annual Auction Against Hunger in aid of Action Against Hunger. For one night only some of London’s top chefs, restaurants and traders came together to serve up an array of one-off delicious dishes for the 700 strong foodie crowd to sample. James Lowe, Anna Hansen, Nieves Barragan Mohacho, Yauatcha Patisserie, Ceviche, Andina, Mike Reid, Smokestak, Bread Ahead, KS Ate Here, Luca, The Begging Bowl, Horn OK Please, Jennifer Earle, Khanom Krok, Claw and Busaba were just a number of the chefs that guests could select 7 dishes to enjoy throughout the evening. We were absolutely delighted to support the event providing guests with GB&T’s and a lot in the auction for a tour at the Distillery and overnight stay at Verzon House which was hosted by Christie’s youngest ever auctioneer Tom Best. 

An incredible £51,000 was raised to go towards a wonderful cause; to help malnourished children gain access to water, food, healthcare and training. A big cheers to everyone involved – we are already looking forward to next year!
