IG Wines – Hospice Angelus Fundraising and Wine Tasting Evening, Friday 22nd November 2019

 

Following on from the success of the first fundraising event for Hospice Angelus in 2017, we thought it a brilliant time, in the build up to the festive season, to host another unforgettable evening. It is also a great opportunity for you to see the new IG Wines office, situated at the foot of Tower Bridge!

Hospice Angelus is very close to our hearts, established 20 years ago when my father in law realised that the post-Soviet collapse in Moldova had left no palliative care. He thus left his career as a leading surgeon and founded Hospice Angelus. Since it’s inception the hospice has provided care for thousands of people, changed legislation in Moldova and given support to families who have lost those closest to them. In our first fundraising event, we raised in excess of £15,000 which has gone a long way to support those who need it most.

I have personally experienced the importance of such support in the UK, a system which provides superb care, and have felt the benefit first-hand for my family. As President of Hospice Angelus I have seen how Moldova continues to struggle with healthcare funding and how Hospice Angelus provides palliative care to so many who, humble in receiving, feel the benefit of this I incredible project.

The evening will commence with a Champagne reception at 18.00, followed by an array of excellent wines, some poured from a variety of large formats. The wines on show will include some of the finest offerings from Louis Roederer, Tua Rita, Pagodes de Cos, Arnoux Lachaux, Feudi san Gregorio, Sette Ponti, Siepi and Gaja!

There is no cost for the evening, all we ask is that you come and enjoy some great wine, world class food and music; all whilst supporting this fantastic charity that is so close to our hearts.
