On Sunday 18th June Christchurch Food Festival Education Trust celebrated its 15th anniversary with a fundraising afternoon tea event. Rotarians Richard Reader, Paul Mills, Mike Turvey and Mike Kearley and their wives attended the event at The Captains Club.

Christchurch Rotary has strong connections with the work carried out by the trust spreading the values of cooking and food among local schools and has made substantial donations over the years to further their work.
Prior to this and through the Rotary Young Chef competition and local schools we supported Kirsti Maybank (pictured with Mary Reader) through to the National Finals of the competition. Kirsti has subsequently gone on to work at Claridges Hotel in London & luxury yachts in the Mediterranean
