Wine Tasting Evening Fundraiser

26 November @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm


Fun-filled wine tasting evening with Duncan Murray raising funds for the Northampton General Hospital children’s wards outside play area.

Are you looking for a fun night out and an opportunity to raise funds for a great cause at the same time?  Then why not join Northamptonshire Health Charity for their first Wine Tasting event on Friday 26 November at Harleston Village Institute.

The event is being hosted by the flamboyant Duncan Murray of Duncan Murray Wines, Market Harborough.  You will be tasting 8 quality wines with accompanying cheeses and all proceeds will go to the charity’s fundraising appeal for the new outside play area between the children’s wards at Northampton General Hospital.

Children of all ages and abilities are treated on Disney and Paddington wards with some young patients receiving chemotherapy and some children being treated in the Paediatric Assessment Unit.  The new improved space will be equipped to provide a range of outside play activities as well as new options for physiotherapy.  It will also have vastly improved accessibility for all children, which will enable parents and carers with physical disabilities to take their children out to play.  Play is also vital in helping children to comprehend what is happening to them, which in turn helps them cope with receiving treatment.

Play Service Co-ordinator Sue Faulkner explains, “Having a bright, welcoming new play area will be fantastic!  It will be a therapeutic outdoor space where all children and parents can spend time outside, in all weathers. This space will help promote children’s health and well-being during their stay within the hospital environment.

The charity’s wine tasting event next month is going to be a really fun way to raise some much-needed funds towards this fantastic project to make a huge difference to local children in hospital.  Tickets for the evening are £30 per person, to purchase yours and for more information please visit Or contact the charity team : call 01604 626927 or email
