A big thank you to all the staff and students that helped make the event such a success!

NSPCC FISH FEAST – 21st March 2015 – WE RAISED £9139.62

"Fishy Feast"146 guests, 60 helpers, 16 different fish, 876 glasses, 2044 pieces of cutlery, 1650 portions of food, 1 great cause!

Following on from the highly successful Dingley Dell Flying Visits Pork Feast in 2013, which raised £7,500 for the NSPCC, Chris Le-Vien (Catering Manager) and the team at Corpus decided to embark on an even more extravagant charity event: a seven-course Fish Feast. On Saturday 21st March the team pulled out all the stops for an evening of mouth-watering dishes and carefully selected wines. Each course was put together by an award-winning chef or industry expert, ably assisted with preparations and plating up by a team of apprentice chefs from selected colleges around the country.

We would like to thank the following suppliers who kindly donated towards the evening’s proceeds, helping to increase the donation to the NSPCC to a grand total of £9139.62: Anthony Byrne Fine Wines, Raynor Foods, Diversey, Fisher & Wood, Sherringhams, 3663, Town & Country, Select Recruitment, Workshop, Cheese+, Blunham Dairies, Liquidline, Mash Produce, Sparshotts Fruiterers and Swiss Laundry. Finally, special thanks must go to all the amazing chefs, staff and students for giving up their free time for such a worthy cause and helping to make the evening such a success. It was a pleasure to host this wonderful event with so many brilliant people!

OPEN CAMBRIDGE DINNER – SEPT 14

The Open Cambridge Dinner, which took place on Friday 12th September 2014, proved to be another huge success. We received some wonderful feedback from guests, some of whom had travelled from as far afield as Australia to be here. The evening started off with a champagne drinks reception on Old Court lawn, followed by a delightful three-course meal with tea and coffee in the College dining hall. The evening was rounded off by the Parker Library’s Dr Christopher de Hamel, who gave a brief talk about the College, its chilling ghost stories and its fascinating collection of historical documents.

We would like to thank all our guests and staff for making the evening such a success, and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
