Celebrity chef cooks up a feast for wildlife charity

Mike Robinson's demonstration dinner will be both informative and delicious, as well as raising funds for the GWCTThe Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust (GWCT) a leading research charity, has organised a unique fund-raising event in Fulham that involves a special butchery demonstration of a roe deer followed by a delicious dinner created especially for the evening by celebrated TV game chef Mike Robinson.

This one-of-a-kind event will take place at Mike Robinson's pub, The Harwood Arms in Fulham on the evening of Wednesday 30 April 2014. Proceeds for the evening will go towards funding the GWCT's vital and groundbreaking game and wildlife research.

As well as owning and running The Harwood Arms and other gourmet food businesses, Mike Robinson is celebrated as a presenter of cookery programmes for BBC2, ITV1, Sky and UKTV Food, as well as writing a range of best-selling cookery books and DVDs.

For those with a hankering to become a hunter/gatherer, Mike will be butchering a whole roe deer and talking everyone through the best way to handle a carcass. Afterwards there will be a delicious two-course dinner designed specially by the chefs at the Harwood Arms. There will also be a small auction and raffle in order to raise money for the Trust at the end of the evening.

GWCT London events organiser Lucy Pearson said, "It should be a very interesting and relaxed evening where there is no seating plan but you just grab a few chairs with your friends, learn some useful new skills and enjoy the delicious offerings of some expert chefs. We are really thrilled that Mike has agreed to arrange this evening for you. It is certainly very different."

Tickets are available at £50 per person, but numbers are strictly limited to 50. For more information please contact Lucy Pearson at lpearson@gwct.org.uk or by phone on 0207 290 0110.
