In support of Galvin’s Chance

10% from each booking will go directly to Galvin’s Chance.  Enjoying this delicious menu means you can make a difference to young people like Ben. Ben was referred to Galvin’s Chance from the Jobcentre and was in a desperate situation, as he was about to become homeless and was being evicted from his hostel. Ben had not held down a job for any length of time and was identified as being ‘at risk’.

Ben interviewed for Galvin’s Chance, as he had an interest and passion for food and was looking for structure and direction.

Ben impressed employers at a site visit to The Lansdowne Club and was offered a two week trial, which led directly to employment. He now works full time at the Club as a commis waiter in the Dining Room.

All money raised from the Chocolate Afternoon Tea will help change the lives of young people like Ben! To book your Afternoon Tea, please click here.
