Many of you have recently discovered the joys of cycling and this has inspired me to relaunch my Brompton Bike collection (originally commissioned by Brompton Bikes for their world championships at Goodwood in 2014).

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.

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.
