All-Star Charity Dinner and Auction

EVENT UPDATE

We have been closely monitoring the rapidly evolving situation with the spread of COVID-19 Coronavirus and we are committed to take every precaution to look after our community, staff and volunteers.


After careful consideration and as a precautionary measure, we have decided to cancel the #CookForOz charity event scheduled for 26th March at Australia House.

 

 CONTEXT / COVID-19


On 11th March, The World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 a global pandemic.


On 12th March, the UK government held an emergency Cobra committee meeting, officially shifting the COVID-19 Action Plan from the “contain” phase to the “delay” phase.


Potential delay phase actions include “population distancing strategies such as school closures, encouraging greater home working, reducing the number of large-scale gatherings”. Mass gatherings have also been banned in Australia and other countries, with many events cancelled or postponed.


 REFUNDS / FUNDRAISING 


All ticket holders will be given a full refund and we would like to thank our supporters for their cooperation and understanding.


Over the past few weeks, more than AUD $590,000 has been raised by London 120+ restaurants for vulnerable Australian communities and wildlife devastated by the Australian bushfires. We will continue to fund raise in other ways. 


We want to take this opportunity to thank our incredible team of chefs and volunteers, loyal supporters, plus generous suppliers, sponsors and donors.


We wish everyone good health and personal safety during this difficult period. Thank you.
