Cadogan Tate lends a hand to NSPCC to help raise over £600,000

Cadogan Tate was delighted to be appointed as the “Official Transport Partner” for ‘An Evening at the River Café’ in aid of the NSPCC. The event was held on a glorious Sunday evening in London and raised over £600,000 for two of the NSPCC’s therapeutic programmes – Letting the Future In and Turn the Page.
Hosted by Giles Coren and Tom Parker Bowles, the guest list was peppered with some of the most prestigious chefs from all over the world, including Tom Aikens, Jason Atherton, Raymond Blanc, Angela Hartnett, Giorgio Locatelli and Ruth Rogers. Some of London’s most well-known restaurateurs, artists and fashionistas were also present.
An auction was held as part of the event, with kindly-donated items including a day in the kitchen with Giorgio Locatelli, a chance to join the stars of Monty Python on stage at the O2 and A Far Eastern getaway for four at Amankora in Bhutan. Also up for grabs on the night were a select few pieces of art, including a unique sculpture by Antony Gormley (sold for £130,000), ‘Signature Towers Perspective’ – a painting by Dame Zaha Hadid (sold for £60,000) and a unique Marc Quinn print (which sold for £50,000).
Speaking about the event, Giles Coren said: “It was great to see so many famous faces from the culinary world come together to support the NSPCC, and it was a real privilege to be involved.” Tom Parker Bowles added: “Thanks to our hugely generous guests, we were able to raise over £600,000 to help the NSPCC transform the lives of hundreds of children through their therapeutic work – a fantastic result.
