This year’s Eat Jersey Food Festival raised £5,141 in aid of the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust.
The festival, which took place in mid-March, has now raised more than £25,000 for the trust since partnering with it five year ago.
‘As we mark five years since the first Eat Jersey Food Festival in 2015, it is incredibly rewarding for all those involved to have raised in excess of £5,000 for Durrell,’ Patrick Burke, owner and Managing Director of The Atlantic Hotel, and festival founder.
‘It’s a charity close to the hearts of many people in Jersey and further afield and we are thrilled to be able to make this contribution to their invaluable work. We would like to thank all those who donated their time, expertise and money.’
The line-up for Eat Jersey 2020 included chefs Will Holland, Daniel Clifford, Kuba Winkowski, Simon Hulstone, William Curley, Joe Baker and Lee Westcott, who each crafted a menu celebrating local ingredients. The festival also included a silent auction.
Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust is an international charity working to save species from extinction and is headquartered at Jersey Zoo.
