FareShare was delighted to have been selected charity partner of The Sammies Awards 2018, organised by the British Sandwich & Food to Go Association last week.
The event, taking place at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London, celebrated the very best of the British Sandwich and Food To Go industry and attributed no less than 15 Awards, from Best Sandwich to Sandwich Designer of the Year.
Over 600 guests were invited to buy raffle tickets and take part in a cash draw to help FareShare raise vital funds supporting our work fighting hunger and food waste across the UK.
Raffle prizes included a signed Arsenal football, a Spanish food hamper, and an afternoon tea for two at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London.
Through the course of the evening, FareShare raised £2,200 thanks to the generosity of The Sammies Awards’ guests.
"Thank you to the generosity of the guests at The Sammies, we raised enough to provide over 8,000 meals for people in need at the awards evening. We are grateful to The British Sandwich Association for choosing FareShare as the benefitting charity this year and helping us to raise awareness of our work and raise vital funds."
