Wine tasting, fund-raising


The Wine School of Cheshire will be hosting its second fundraising wine tasting event to support its preferred charity, Chester Aid To the Homeless (CATH).

The summer 2018 event is being held thanks to the generosity of Chester’s Grosvenor Museum.

The museum will be open especially for the event on Wednesday 6th June (6-8pm).

At the fundraising event, visitors will be able to attend a special private viewing of the Monumental Rage exhibition by Chester-educated artist and sculptor Michael Sandle, and enjoy a selection of wines and canapés from The Wine School of Cheshire whilst listening to a variety of local musicians perform in the gallery spaces.

All proceeds from the event will go towards supporting the work of Chester Aid To the Homeless and in particular the upkeep of the organisation’s Grosvenor Road base which is directly opposite the museum. 

Richard Smith, founder of The Wine School of Cheshire, commented: “I am thrilled to be working with the Grosvenor Museum, to be hosting this fantastic event for CATH and supporting the work of this wonderful charity.”

Richard explained: “Our last event for CATH at Christmas was a great success and we are hoping to raise even more this time. 

“There really shouldn’t be any homelessness in our country today yet there are so many causes which we don’t consider.

“CATH is an amazing organisation with some wonderful people giving their time to provide shelter and support for the sadly growing homeless community in our city.”

The Wine School of Cheshire does not sell wine, thereby allowing guests to attend without the worry of any sales pressure at the end of an event.

The wine school always features affordable wines, which are available from local retailers, with its principal Chester venues being Restaurant 1539 at Chester Racecourse and The Chester Grosvenor hotel.

CATH operates the only day centre in the city for the homeless and relies entirely on donations to continue its outstanding work.
