Irish Tasting Evening

A month early for St Patrick’s Day, the evening of Saturday 23rd February Hgta members and friends met in Huntingdon Town Hall to enjoy a fund raising Irish themed evening. A three-course meal made from traditional recipes plus a wee taste of Irish Cream then Irish whiskey helped things along nicely. Music from ‘Finn McCool’, a Celtic band made the evening go with a swing and during dinner, everyone was able to view a slide show of Irish scenes that Graham Shirra had put together.

During the evening Gwen King presented a cheque for £1000 to Addenbrookes Charitable Trust Pink Rose Appeal given that most of the money she had raised this past year, from her hand-made greetings cards and scarves was done so at the Wertheim Trade Fair in May 2012. Gwen felt that by making the donation through Hgta gave publicity to the twinning association. Professor John Benson was pleased to accept the donation on behalf of Addenbrookes.

The evening rounded off with a good old sing along to traditional Irish tunes.
