Event description
Join us for a 5 course tasting menu at Arnotts Homemade Restaurant to raise funds for Debra Ireland's Arctic Challenge 2020

About this Event

In March 2020 Deirdre and Grainne are travelling, with 18 other adventurers to the wilderness of Kittila in Finland, 150 km North of the Arctic Circle where the weather forecast is for a cosy -23 degrees! We haven’t lost our minds, we are taking part in this amazing adventure to raise funds for Debra Ireland, an inspiring charity who work with children living with the painful skin condition EB (epidermolysis bullosa) which affects one in 18,000 babies in Ireland. The “butterfly” children have fragile skin which causes painful sores and blistering, both internal and external, for which there is no cure. We will have no running water, heat or electricity for six days but this is nothing compared to the bravery and resilience that these children exhibit on a daily basis.

EB Awareness Week runs from the 21-27 October 2019 and through this event we are targeting to raise €5,000 for Debra Ireland with all funds going directly to the charity. This will help to fund another EB expert nurse on the road and provide families with proper local care packages. Baxterstorey are hosting a 5 course tasting menu including wine. The food and venue have all been kindly donated free of charge by our generous suppliers and Arnotts……and the chefs & waiting staff have generously given their time and talent for this worthy cause, we will have goody bags sponsored by Arnotts and also a raffle with some excellent prizes.

We are raising awareness for the patient support services provided by Debra Ireland so please also spread the word by sharing my EventBrite and JustGiving pages with your family and friends https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/dee-grainnearcticchallenge2020. www.debraireland.org

Drinks reception on the night at 7pm followed by dinner at 7.30pm.
