Join Gibbon Bridge and BBC 2 drivetime broadcaster Nigel Barden for food, fun and prizes
Big-hearted bosses from the world of football and fashion, leisure and hospitality and hair and beauty, have donated thousands of pounds worth of luxury goodies for our Foodie Friday event.
The premiere prizes – from VIP sporting experiences to designer handbags and high-end electrical items - will be raffled to raise money for people affected by the devastating Ribble Valley floods.
All proceeds will go to the Whalley and District Lions who continue to work tirelessly to help those most vulnerable who are still rebuilding their lives and businesses after climatic chaos struck earlier this year.
The glittering event, hosted by culinary king Nigel Barden, will also showcase some of the region’s finest food producers in an impressive three-course feast.
Kicking off the delicious dinner is a starter of Leagram’s twice-baked Cheese soufflé, served on marinated plum tomatoes and topped with deep fried spinach leaves.
The main event is our really crispy Goosnargh roast duckling (supplied by Johnson and Swarbrick) with sage and onion stuffing and apple sauce.
And for pudding, the Gibbon Bridge bakery will be cooking up our home-grown produce to create a mouth-watering rhubarb and custard tart with a rhubarb and ginger sorbet.
Says Nigel - a long-time friend of GB owner Janet Simpson: “I am looking forward to heading back to my Lancashire birthplace to share some great food and stories with Gibbon Bridge guests.
“Lancashire has some of the finest food producers in the whole of Great Britain – and this event and menu will showcase a slice of this.
