Blaggers’ Banquet: final total raised & thanks!

It is with great pride and pleasure that I announce the total fundraised by the Blaggers’ Banquet & Auction for Action Against Hunger – a whopping £9349.49.

Many thanks to everyone who supported us and donated food, drink, prizes and miscellaneous essentials. Special thanks go to Hawksmoor for being our inaugural hosts.

The Blaggers’ Banquet could never have happened without our sterling team of volunteers, those on the night and those who worked tirelessly building it, blagging and running the auction. Many hands make light work, unless you’re dealing with paypal and ebay who caused us endless problems, so particular thanks go to Kavey, Sig, Linda, Susie and Ailbhe who toiled tirelessly.

We learned a lot and look forward to doing it again. Watch this space for details on our Food Lovers Sports Day for Action Against Hunger (official name tbc!).

Cooking and travelling, and sharing it all with you.


  1. And well done you for kicking this all off! There’ll be people none of us know who’ll benefit from everyone’s generousity of time, produce and skills. Here’s to this year’s event, bring it on – it was fun too!
    : )

  2. Food Lovers Sports Day? Sounds something of an oxymoron!

    Great work Niamh – this is something to be really proud of.

  3. It felt SOOO good to transfer the money across to AAH. YAY US! And Yay all the fantastic suppliers who donated prizes, food and drink and goodie bag items!
