Marie Curie is calling on food fans in The North East to hold a retro-inspired dinner party in aid of the charity this November. Retro food is having a revival and Marie Curie’s new fundraising campaign, ‘Dinner Down Memory Lane’ is about holding a dinner party and recreating your favourite nostalgic food.
Recreate time-honoured classics or put a contemporary twist on some old classics like duck a’l orange and prawn cocktail. The money raised from every dinner party will help Marie Curie provide more free care to people living with a terminal illness and their families.
Hayley Revell, Community Fundraiser for Marie Curie said: “We’re really looking forward to seeing what the local community cooks up – whether it be a classic recipe from the past or putting a new twist on an old favourite.
“Holding a ‘Dinner Down Memory Lane’ is a great alternative to a normal dinner party and by inviting friends to make a donation in return for a dinner with a difference, you’ll be helping Marie Curie Nurses to provide care and support to people living with a terminal illness and their families.”
