Biddenden Vineyards’ food & drink day raises over £4000 for Kent Air Ambulance

On Sunday 9th June 2013 Biddenden Vineyards hosted its annual food & drink day “Taste the Best of Produced in Kent”.  The event, which is held in aid of the Kent Air Ambulance saw over 1800 visitors – a record number for the day, now in its seventh year.


Nearly 40 producers took part, with products including locally made cheeses, chutneys, beers, liqueurs, game, plants, pies, wool products, sauces, cobnuts and much more.  The vineyard shop was also open as usual offering tastings of its wines, ciders & juices as well as Ploughman’s lunches made using local cheeses and ham.

All stand holder fees were donated in full to the Kent Air Ambulance, along with donations being taken from visit
ors on the day.  A raffle was also held, with prizes being donated from every stand holder, and this year’s lucky winner was Denise Clifford of Tenterden (pictured below).

Overall a grand total of £4074.14 was raised for the Air Ambulance, which will be presented to them next month.

The date for next year’s event has been set at Sunday 8th June 2014.
