The Festival has proudly announced that this year our chosen charity is Action Against Hunger. We could think of no more appropriate charity for a Food and Drink festival to support. With our help they can continue to make a difference. They are a non political world charity that simply tries to feed starving people in trouble.
For almost 40 years, across nearly 50 countries, they have led the global fight against hunger. They save the lives of children and work with their communities before and after the disaster strikes. How could we turn our back?
