Katherine Howell, 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.”
Actress Alison Steadman is supporting ‘Dinner Down Memory Lane’ and is no stranger to retro food, having stared in the cult 70’s play ‘Abigail’s Party’. She said:
“Retro food seems to be everywhere at the moment and getting together for a dinner party is always good fun. So combine the two, and host your own retro-inspired dinner party for Marie Curie.
“Dinner Down Memory Lane’ is the charity’s new fundraising campaign and is the perfect excuse to be part of the retro revival while raising money to help Marie Curie care for people living with a terminal illness.
“Revisit classic recipes or surprise your guests by putting a contemporary twist on some old favourites. There’s nothing like a bit of nostalgia to make you feel good.”
