Banquet for the Spirit: a Charity Dinner

 Charity Dinner

Ever wondered what London looks like to the eyes of a homeless man, or an older woman?

Join us for an evening of friendship, food and sharing with the Community of Sant’Egidio, hosted by Tasting Sicily – Enzo’s Kitchen restaurant. You’ll donate to an all-volunteers charity fighting loneliness that every week visits the homeless and every month prepares a dinner for older people. You’ll also have a chance to talk to many of its members, and discuss what it means to be in need in London.

An unmissable fundraising event where you will taste the finest Italian cuisine (straight from Sicily’s traditions) and participate to a raffle and an auction. All whilst donating to charity!

The Charity

The Community of Sant’Egidio was born in Rome in 1968. It was created by a group of students who decided they wanted to donate some of their time to the most vulnerable, in a personal way. It is now a movement in more than 70 countries of the world.

In London, Sant’Egidio is a friend of the poor: every week its members gather together to make sandwiches which they then distribute in four different areas of London to people in need living in the streets. They have now met many homeless, who remind them of what counts in life, and how true friendship is a real treasure.

Sant’Egidio also organises a monthly event called “Our Cup of Tea” for older people and anyone who is lonely. It is completely free of charge for anyone coming, and is a three-course dinner full of entertainment, singing and sometimes even dancing. Most of all, it is an evening where a new family is created, where everyone feels at home, and where one hardly distinguishes who serves from who is being served.
