An evening of gin tasting is on offer at Sandon Hall on March 14 from 7.30pm where a wide range of speciality gins from different distilleries will be available to try.

Participants will enjoy a cheese sharing platter and receive a gin glass to take home.

The event also includes a talk by gin expert David Hunter from the Nelson’s Distillery and Gin School.

Katharine House Hospice’s events fundraiser, Lisa Carson said: “We are delighted to be working in collaboration with Stone Community Hub and really hope the people of Stafford will come along to support our charities and enjoy a gin or two!

"We also have a fantastic new venue this year at Sandon Hall which will definitely add a touch of elegance to the occasion. It promises to be a really great night with lots of different gins from local distilleries to try and take home!”

Tickets are just £20 from or by calling 01785 270808 and include a gin and tonic on arrival, a cheese sharing platter and a gin glass.

All proceeds will be split equally between Katharine House Hospice and Stone Community Hub.

Gin at Sandon Hall is sponsored for the second year by Intro Personnel.

Katharine House Hospice provides free care and support for adults and their families who are coping with progressive illness across mid-Staffordshire. It relies upon the kindness of the local community to help generate over 75 per cent of the funds needed to run its range of vital services.

Stone Community Hub is an independent registered charity dedicated to improving the lives of residents of Stone and its surrounding villages. It provides advice and support, a meeting place, drop in centre and food bank. The Hub relies on local support, fundraising and small grants to continue its work.
