A helping hand from Hari Covert…

We approached secret restaurateur Hari Covert a while back to see what he could do in helping us raise funds for past and future projects we are keen to support.

As a charity it is always hard to think how can we raise much needed funds and even more challenging when it is so competitive and perhaps our charity and needs is not high on some people’s radar.

Hari however has been keen to do something different for us and we are delighted and amazed at what he has proposed as one of our fundraising ideas for 2012.

It will be a challenge he will have to “rise” to as he has agreed to serve a special “Covert” dinner on top of the roof of St. Peter and St. Paul’s Church, Yalding, Kent.

The dinner will take place of Saturday 23rd June 2012 and is being dubbed by many of us within the YCPS as “Midsummer Madness” as it is the day before Midsummer’s Day.

The way Hari is raising funds for us as well is equally novel and has been designed to be fair to as many as possible.

For every £1 donation you make via his fundraising page you will get your name placed in a virtual hat that will then be drawn (hopefully at the Yalding Jubilee Party on June 4th) when three lucky winners will be invited with their chosen guests to climb to the top of the tower for a sumptuous supper.

A further twenty-five names drawn will also be invited each with a guest of their choice to attend a reception we will be hosting within the churchyard where Hari will also be providing us a light refreshment.

So this is a very exciting and different way for us to raise funds for our projects that we hope you will also share with friends and family.

Please do support Hari’s efforts and donate via his fundraising page

We hope you get lucky and we get to see you at the event!
