A gin-tasting event has been organised by a charity.
It will take place at the newly-refurbished Olive Tree Bistro in Otford from 7pm on Thursday, May 20 and has been set up by Hospices of Hope.
The event will be run in a Covid-secure manner with bookings for groups of six or two households - in line with government guidelines - being taken from Monday, May 17.
Hospices of Hope is using its 30th anniversary as a force for good to build on its vital hospice care and comprehensive training services for South-east Europe.
The charity believes everyone affected by life-limiting illnesses should have access to free care and that their families should receive counselling and support.
They rely almost entirely on voluntary donations and, thanks to the generosity of its supporters, they have been able to continue their vital work.
The evening will commence with a welcome drink and light bites, provided by COOK Tunbridge Wells, followed by the gin-tasting with the sampling of four different gins – and participants can learn how they are produced by Kent-based distillery Greensand Ridge.
Anna Perolls, managing director at Hospices of Hope and daughter of founder Graham, said: “We are most grateful to Greensand Ridge for giving their time to this great gin-tasting event to help us fund our vital work for sick children and adults across the region.
“It’s going to be a great night!
“Money raised from the event will enable families with a seriously ill family member to make the most of the precious time they have together.”
Tickets can be booked at https://bit.ly/3uRePIe and cost £20 per person.
The charity was founded in 1991 by Graham Perolls.
