Event ListingCharity Gin Tasting in The Shire Hall


Charity Gin Fundraiser is Just the Tonic


Gin lovers of Suffolk will be treated to a special tutored masterclass organised to help raise valuable funds for a charity that support deaf people.

Local award winning hearing care specialists, The Hearing Care Centre have teamed up with Suffolk’s own Gin Lord – an enthusiast and connoisseur of all things gin, to hold an evening of appreciation for this much loved spirit.

The event which is being hosted at Shire Hall in Woodbridge, takes place on Thursday 27th April 2017 and starts at 7.00pm.

All proceeds from the event are being donated to Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.

During the evening, guests will have the opportunity to enjoy five of The Gin Lord’s favourite gins, paired with premium tonics and a selection of nibbles, ranging from smaller ‘craft’ distilleries to more well-known brands. A talk will accompany the tasting to help understand what Gin actually is, its history, how’s it’s made and how to pick out key botanicals.

The Hearing Care Centre, which has 23 centres across Suffolk and Norfolk, is run by Managing Director Karen Finch.

“It has been known for me to enjoy a gin and tonic or two at the weekends, but like so many of us, I’ve never really appreciated what goes into making these drinks”, said Karen.

“We are very lucky to have the Gin Lord giving up his time to support such a wonderful cause and we hope that many of you will join us for a fantastic evening.”

The award winning company managed to raise over £10,000 for Hearing Dogs for Deaf People last year, which was enough to sponsor a brand new Hearing Dog puppy.

Tickets for this event are priced at £20.00pp, which includes all drinks and nibbles. There will also be a fantastic raffle. To book tickets call The Hearing Care Centre on 01473 230330 or visit www.hearingcarecentre.co.uk/gin
