Hundreds take part in fundraiser “Marlow Tastes”

| | ,

Hundreds of food lovers took to Marlow’s streets this week to raise over £8,000 for families struggling with the cost of living and for victims of the earthquakes in Turkey and Syria.

Five restaurants opened their doors for Marlow Tastes, the town’s first progressive supper, by providing menus ranging from traditional British fare to international flavours.

The event on Tuesday 25th April was organised by Marlow Thames Rotary and was launched with a reception at Court Garden in Higginson Park.

Diners were then led to secret locations for a food course in each of three restaurants which were Marlow Bar and Grill, the Compleat Angler, the Oarsman, La Cantina del Vino and Suum Vietnamese Kitchen.

Richard Gyselynck, president of Marlow Thames Rotary Club, described the pioneer safari as a ‘complete success’. He said: “Marlow is a vibrant town gifted with fine restaurants and there was much enthusiasm from the chefs who were able to showcase some truly tasty food.”

“Rotary is at the heart of its communities but is also quick to respond to worldwide demands. The success of Marlow Tastes encourages us to repeat the safari next year, hopefully with even more fine restaurants.”
