Lot 4 – A ‘Hari Covert’ meal for twelve persons

A stalwart supporter of YCPS Hari has agreed to host your very own private “Secret Supperclub” event at his secret local location.

Following a welcome drink and nibbles on arrival  you will be served a special four course meal served to your select group of guests.

Hari  is something of a man of mystery, some might say an “enigma” but he just loves to cook his unique style of food. He has cooked in a cheese cellar and even cooked for royalty.

He cooked locally for a double gold Olympic medal winner and even managed to rise to the YCPS challenge of serving a dinner on the church roof in the summer of 2012.

This is your chance to host your very own special dinner. All you need to do is supply your own drinks to have with the meal. Glasses, Ice Buckets and water Hari will happily provide.

(The estimated value of this item is £420)

Going, Going, Gone…

The YCPS has decided to end the year with a bang by running a major fundraiser to bolster their funds. This is to enable them to continue their work in supporting and maintaining the fabric of St Peter & St Paul’s Church in the village of Yalding, Kent. We are holding an on line “Auction of Promises” that is hoped will raise some significant funds for any future projects.

gavelThis event will start at 9am on Wednesday 4th of December and will conclude at 8pm on Saturday December 15th. Some of the Trustees will be on hand in the church on Saturday 7th December during the “Yalding Yuletide Market” in the village so if you want to discuss any aspects please look out for them. 

All the items up for auction have been generously donated by some of the trustees as well as supporters both near and far. We think there is a real interesting mix of items and we hope it will attract a wide audience and some new support for the work they do.

You will also have seen the YCPS has undergone a bit of a makeover with a new look web site, new logo and now we are slowly building an on line mailing list so we can keep you more informed on a regular basis about what we are up to.  YCPS_logo_noTxt

We do hope you will support the Auction… make a bid and maybe you might just be lucky to secure something as well. There is quite a selection… we will post over the next few days what each item is with some greater detail so do keep checking for the latest posts!
