"I have relished the rare opportunity to raid Charles Lea’s reserves for this annual NSPCC event, and have chosen three of my favourite wines from tremendous estates in France, Italy and Australia. I cannot wait to taste this sensational trio with guests and I hope that all of the tickets sell out in record speed given the gravitas of the wines, the unique format and the urgent need to raise funds for this worthy cause."
Matthew Jukes, Wine Writer

A quiz with a difference

The City Fine Wine Challenge is a quiz with a twist

As part of the evening's entertainment we encourage you, in exchange for donations, to cheat your way to the Challenge trophy. For the right amount, an NSPCC volunteer will gladly sell you clues, double-point joker cards and even answers.

Swindle your way to the top and convince your peers of your wine knowledge, all with a clear conscience!

Whatever their worry - Childline is here

"I just wanted to thank Childline for the chat yesterday. Your support saved my friendship. Everything is better now, and I am so relieved. I will definitely come back to Childline if I ever need support again."

"I’m so grateful to Childline for listening to me. The previous counsellor I spoke to was so supportive and amazing. The advice you give always helps me to think clearer so I can make better decisions in my life. I feel so much better now."

"I have been seeing a counsellor at school for the last few years which has helped. I only see them once a week so in between I look at the Childline website for tips on managing anger and stress."
Boy, 13, Childline website user

"The volunteers who contribute are exceptional people… [We] are committed to the service continuing because we want to guarantee it is there for children and young people. We realise there is a real need and we are there for them."
Gwenno Huws, Childline volunteer counsellor in Prestatyn

"I really love that you have this community created for all ages. I’ve been trying to find places like this, so thank you for having this where we can talk and support each other. I doubt there is another just as supportive and safe message boards anywhere."
