"2020 and 2021 have been and continue to be exceptionally difficult for children. We hope that this year’s Great Chefs Dinner will raise over £300,000 to ensure that the NSPCC can continue to deliver vital safeguarding messages to children in schools via the Speak Out. Stay Safe. service, and hope that you can join us for this gastronomic feast. The event is the perfect opportunity for networking and corporate hospitality, whilst raising vital funds for the NSPCC’s Speak out. Stay Safe. programme. Thank you to all those who have booked their table for this 2021 event- we are so excited to welcome you to the Guildhall on 2nd December."
