OXBO Bankside is hosting a special 'Social Friday' fundraising lunch in order to raise money for Hospitality Action.
Hospitality Action is a charitable organisation that provides vital assistance to all who work, or have worked, within the UK hospitality industry and find themselves in crisis. Their aim is to support people suffering from life altering illnesses, experiencing poverty or bereavement – along with other life affecting circumstances.
The charity lunch will be curated by new head chef, Ollie Couillaud, who was appointed in February this year. Chef Ollie puts a huge emphasis on flavour when designing his plates and is a bastion of simple and quality cooking, this is very much reflected in his first curated menu at OXBO Bankside.
Attendees will be greeted with a drink upon arrival, followed by unlimited starters. Then each guest will have their pick of a trio of mains, finished off with an unlimited buffet of hand-crafted desserts.
The Social Friday event will also be enhanced with live music and a raffle.
Tickets for this event are priced at £25 per person, with all proceeds going to Hospitality Action's essential grants, schemes and educational seminars.
Special guest appearances will come in the form of two members of the London Lions basketball team, Joe Ikhinmwin and Andre Lockhart, who will join Chef Ollie in the kitchen and assist in the lunch preparations.
