Take 6 Chefs – Prize Draw for the Kitchen Table

We are pleased to announce the tickets for this forthcoming fundraising event are now totally sold out. 50 people are booked in and all paid for this one off special evening of fine food and wines.

We do however have just one table left for four people that we are offering in a prize draw. Located within the thick of the action the table is located in the kitchen.

We are asking via our dedicated Virgin Money Giving Page for donations of £5 increments to get your name in our virtual hat. So a £20 donation would mean your name would be in it four times. The dinner takes place on Thursday May 23rd at the Oaks Restaurant in the MidKent College Campus in Maidstone. Full details on the event can be found here. 

There will be a range of items also up for auction on the night and we are keen to raise significant monies to boost our funds to help with the restoration and cleaning of the church organ.

You can also donate offline by seeing our trustee Tim Chapman in the Yalding Post Office where he will add your name to the list once a minimum donation of £5 has been made.

The draw closes at 9:30am on Tuesday May 7th – the draw will be made thereafter and the winner will be notified.

Riverside Pop Up Gallery… our heartfelt thanks

Well, we were not sure what to expect at the recent “End of Season” Auction sale of some 80 plus items donated for the sale. The total proceeds from this sale were to be generously donated by June & Tim Chapman to YCPS funds so there was a great potential to bolster our funds from this single event.

We are delighted to report that along with the donations tin that collected monies from gallery visitors over the summer with monies collected  for their cup of tea or coffee the auction itself raised over £550 on the night so we hope in total a little over £600 overall which is a truly magnificent effort.

Our thanks to all those who attended and entered into the spirit of the event and we cannot thank June enough for all the hard work she put into the evening and making the decision to support YCPS – it was a very generous gesture and we hope we can support her in the future.

If you enjoyed this event do not forget you can support the YCPS at our next one – our “Spirit of Yalding” drinks stall at the Yalding Yuletide Market on the 1st December.


Also please save the date of May23rd for our big charity event of 2019 when we will be holding a big gourmet dinner with Auction… more details to follow soon.
