Tickets available for charity wine tasting event in Chippenham

The Chippenham Cancer Care Fundraising group still has tickets available for its wine tasting event, taking place in Chippenham town centre on 21st May.

Chippenham business Majestic Wine will be providing the wine and the expertise, and the £15 ticket price includes wine tasting, a ploughman’s supper and a wine quiz. There will also be a raffle, with prizes including bottles of wine.

The event starts at 19:30 on Wednesday 21st May, and will be held at Chippenham and District Constitutional Club, Foghamshire, Chippenham SN15 1HB, close to the train and bus stations and taxi rank.

More information is available at www.chippenhamcancercare.com, or by calling 01249 464111 or 01249 658231.

Chair of the Chippenham Care Fundraising Group, Sarah Brearley, said: “All proceeds from this event will go to our group, which is raising money towards the new cancer centre at the Royal United Hospital (RUH) in Bath. This state-of-the-art new facility will transform the healing environment for cancer patients and their families from Chippenham, Melksham, Calne and the surrounding area.

“Local people and businesses have been incredibly generous, and so far we’ve raised over £4,000. Our most recent collection, at Sainsbury’s in Melksham, raised £392.28.”

Over the coming months, the group will be holding further collections, including in Lacock village on Saturday 17th May, and at Asda in Melksham on Saturday 12th July.
