CHOCOLATE FOR CHARITY
Gilbert & Swayne has always had charitable work at the heart of all it does with 10% of all purchases going to a charity of your choice.
Jane recently made 1200 chocolates for a fundraising event organised by Hugh Bonneville for his favourite charity, Scene & Heard at the Mayfair Curzon.
Jane and Dinah met Hugh and Elizabeth, and were also treated to a pre-screening of the new Downton Abbey film, all in aid of the wonderful work of Scene & Heard.
Dinah, (Jane’s sister-in-law & next door neighbour) is a retired book conservator & creates all the Italian memento boxes in her garden studio at Gilbert’s Corner.

Scene & Heard is a unique mentoring project that partners the inner-city children of Somers Town, London with volunteer theatre professionals.
Their mentoring scheme and theatrical performances help to build children’s aspirations and boosts their self-esteem. Your support is invaluable and a small donation can go a long way to engendering future change.
