    It's with great delight and excitement that we can announce today the launch of the #whiskyfordarbs Charity Whisky Tasting Evening, on the 29th November 2019.

    The event will take place in the 2013 Suite at Valley Parade and on the night you will get -

    5 whiskies to taste, provided by the leading distributor of malt whisky, Gordon & MacPhail
    Complimentary Glencairn whisky glass
    A hot supper of haggis, neeps and tatties (mashed swede and potatoes)
    Auction of a range of drinks and sporting memorabilia
    Raffle for the full collection of the five whiskies in the tasting
    A whisky quiz and informative talk about the whiskies supplied

    The bar will be open for drinks prior to the tasting

    The doors open at 7pm with the tastings starting at 8pm

    All profits from the evening will be donated to the DarbyRimmerMND Foundation.

    Tickets for the event are £55.00 inclusive of booking fee. There are 100 tickets available and If all tickets sell, over £20.00 of your ticket price goes to the charity.

    The night will be hosted by charity fund-raiser Ben Bowers, respected YouTuber with his ADramADay channel which can be found here - https://www.youtube.com/adramaday366

    Sounds delightful - but any chance of changing Haggis, neeps and tatties to a kiosk burger or failing that, the contents of a blocked kop toilet?:sick:

    Is the cola mixer included in the price? I can’t seem to find any info on this.

    I really do feel he’s reaching out to the wrong audience advertising on here.

    Even if only one of the readers on here buys a ticket and therefore contributes to the Foundation, it will be the post.

    Over the next four months #whiskyfordarbs will be all over social media, this is just one outlet.

    Although WAY over priced (Particularly with a limited menu) for a good cause ........ It will attract some - But NOT me.
    There are far more things to worry about, closer to HOME than a well admired ex player.
    I hope the event goes well, just as I hope mine (and others) go too. ;)

    You really need to advertise the evening on the Cows Arse forum. Despite the name it’s full of gentlemanly, sophisticated types - they’ll keep it classy.

    Broken down, we get £52.10 of the ticket price after Eventbrite take their cut. We could have charged plus fees but felt it was better not to.

    The catering costs are out of our hands, as we are using the catering company the club use although I negotiated a discount.

    If we sell out, £22.00 of each ticket will go to the Foundation.

    Ben Bowers, who will be leading the evening is doing so without charge plus letting us have some quality (although yet to be decided upon) whiskies at cost price.

    Taking all this into account, the actual cost of the ticket is around £30.00 including the meal.

    And why haggis, neeps and tatties? It's St. Andrews weekend, we're drinking whisky... So why not.

    Kilts are not compulsory!

    Thanks for your best wishes Ronnie.

    ...as long as dates don’t clash and the beers warm I’m in. It’ll obviously be served in plastic cups as the mutants can’t be trusted.

    You're welcome. :)

    At the same time, with help of the NHS - Just Outside of ROVRUM (Wickersley) are running a joint Cancer, Leukaemia, Emphacema and Coeliac event - Of which I suffer from two.
    It is expected that it will be well supported, and sponsored.

    Here's hoping any such events are a success. :)
