Written by: Edward Waddell
The international charity Action Against Hunger held its 17th annual Fine Wine and Art Dinner on Saturday 4th November. With £460,000 raised on the night, the event has now surpassed £5 million raised since its inception 17 years ago.

Two hundred guests enjoyed a four-course meal cooked by renowned Michelin-starred chefs Angela Hartnett, Robert Reid and Neil Borthwick. Funds raised over the course of the evening will go towards supporting Action Against Hunger's work, providing vital aid to those in need. 

The evening included a silent auction with prizes including:

  • Personal cooking day with Raymond Blanc and Angela Harnett
  • A kitchen table lunch at Mark Hix’s home
  • A tour of the Burgundy wineries with David Gleave
  • A private carriage on the British Pullman for 16 guests

Jean-Michel Grand, Action Against Hunger UK’s executive director, said: “This incredible generosity from the attendees will support our programmes in 55 countries around the world, where we can predict, prevent and treat life-threatening hunger.” 

Hunger rates are rising throughout the world with 49 million people in 43 countries across the globe at risk of falling into famine or a severe hunger crisis.
