Butchers put the fun into fundraising at Guildhall

Around 300 guests danced the night away at The Worshipful Company of Butchers Master’s Charity Dinner at Guildhall, London. Master Graham Baker’s chosen charity this year was the Cure Parkinson’s Trust.

Before hitting the dance floor numerous bids were placed in the Silent Auction, which ran throughout the evening offering some splendid prizes from luxury goods, sporting events, dining out in style and holidays in both the sun and snow.

Lucinda Baker presented 90-year old Liveryman, Walter Balmford MBE with a cake on his special day.

Major sponsors included Meat Management, Dunbia, Wrights Food Group and Next who presented each guest with a fraganced candle as a table gift.

Baker said: “The Cure Parkinson’s Trust is the only charity in the UK solely dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease. It has helped Liz and I a great deal and I want to give back. It also does worldwide research into this most debilitating disease, which will be so important in the future.”

The Worshipful Company also presented a special birthday cake to 90-year old Liveryman, Walter Balmford MBE, the oldest Liveryman in the Company.
