Back in April, 13-year-old Tom Booth from Keswick School was announced the winner of our ‘Design a Sandwich’ competition. Tom came up with a cleverly concocted sandwich ‘Stinky Pig’ of hot back bacon, Eden valley brie and mango chutney, served on a warm ciabatta with a side salad of rocket, celery and chopped radish with a balsamic vinegar dressing. The sandwich went on sale across our seven Lake District Hotels from April to October 2018, with 50p from each sale going towards Keswick School, our charity of the year.
An impressive 1,688 sandwiches have been sold across the group, raising a grand total of £844 which will go towards implementing a brand new food technology kitchen within the school, making it more effective and engaging for the students with the aim of encouraging them to learn how to cook and possibly take up careers within the hospitality industry.
The ‘Stinky Pig’ sandwich went down a treat across our hotels, especially at the Inn on the Lake where they sold 782 sandwiches. It was great to see our customers enjoying Tom’s creation, and to see it bring in over £800 for the school.
We have more exciting fundraising events in the pipe line, next year we have a Wild West Charity Night taking place, as well as our glamorous Royal Ascot Ladies Race Day which is our annual event, both of these are in aid of Keswick School and will take place at the Lodore Falls Hotel & Spa.
