We are right in the middle of Somerfield’s charity fund-raising event – their Wine and Cheese Party.
“If 2009 is the year of ‘staying in’ then perhaps now is the time to recreate the sizzle of the seventies fondue nights and join Somerfield’s first ever Wine and Cheese Party for Macmillan Cancer Support, which takes place between the 28 January and 10 February. With a promotion on selected wines and cheeses raising money for Macmillan and tips on wine and cheese matching, it’s a great excuse to have a cheesy night in and help people affected by cancer.
Macmillan will receive at least 50p from each bottle of wine and a minimum of £1.50 from the cheese pack, which will go directly to helping to improve the lives of people affected by cancer. The wines on offer include the lively and aromatic Cono Sur Viognier 2008 and the Cono Sur Pinot Noir 2008 with hints of smoke and spiciness (both priced £6.99). The carefully selected Four Cheese Pack (£5.99), which includes the Bleu d’ Auvergne and White Stilton with Apricots, is sure to get your taste buds buzzing.
To raise even more money for Macmillan, why not host your own wine and cheese party? All you have to do is pick a date in the first two weeks of February, choose your location, invite some friends, and ask for a donation from each guest! See information in store for more tips on how to make your party a success.
With over two million people living with cancer in the UK, all the money raised by the Wine and Cheese Party will help Somerfield in its commitment to help Macmillan reach everyone affected by cancer by 2010.”
