Charity Testimonials

Some feedback from our charity events...

David, May 2024
Hi Jane

Our village hall wine tasting was a tremendous success and Abbie was brilliant, she received a cheer and long applause on the night. We’ve had consistently positive feedback and one request already for your details from people who want to replicate. Thank you again for organising!

Many thanks


Judy - Merchant Taylor School, Feb 2024
Hi Jane,

Thank you very much for your email, Chris was great! He has great energy and enthusiasm and had some excellent tips for choosing wine and working out wine regions.

It probably was a slightly unusual evening for him as we were alternating with bingo so thank you for accommodating us!

Kindest regards,

Michelle, Nov 2019
Hi Jane,

I just wanted to let you know that last night was a great success, Erik was great! and everyone was really impressed with his knowledge and presentation, a few of the guests who go to wine tastings regularly said it was the best one they’d been to.
The wines and beers were delicious and so was the port and we even made a small profit, thank you for giving us a reduced rate its really appreciated.
We spoke about holding a Champagne tasting next year so I may be getting in touch regarding that.
Again, many thanks to both you and Erik I will certainly recommend Thirty Fifty to friends and family.

With warm regards

Hi Jane,

We had a really fantastic time. We didn’t quite sell out but it was still a profitable night for our charity and a smaller group is more fun anyway. Toni as usual was fab, that’s also great news we got a sale, I actually think that was one of the other organisers who was very “merrily” enjoying the red wines!
Yes you can just put that back on the card we paid with and I can put it back into the fundraising pot.

Thanks again for offering this fun fundraising option, I’m sure you will hear from us again.


Suzanne - Kingston Grammar School, Oct 2019
Dear Jane,

Friday night was a huge success and I've had such positive feedback from everyone who attended. Chris delivered a very informative and entertaining evening and he couldn't have done a better job. The Quiz rounds were very popular and really did bring the whole evening together.

The cheeses that Teddington Cheese paired with the wine were perfect and for your own interest they were Brie de Meaux, Schlossberger, Lanark Blue and Rachael - my new favourite cheese is Schlossberger!

I think this is an event we will put on every other year so we'll definitely be using you again and I'll spread the word.

Best wishes,

Cate - Bubbenhall Village Hall, Jul 2019
Hi Jane,

The event was brilliant. Anissa was brilliant, just the right balance of information and fun.

The wines were all lovely and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it.

We will definitely look to book for another event in the future.

A great event!

Thank you so much.


Mark, Mar 2019
Hi Jane

Thanks for your note, it was a really good evening and Abbie was fantastic. The feedback on Abbie was really positive (from all quarters) she did brilliantly with what she said was the biggest group she’d managed; “fun” “educational” “different and a better format to other tastings they’d attended” and a lot of requests for us to stage another event was the feedback I got on the night and on Sunday at training when parents had had the chance to reflect. So all in all a success for us as an age group, we raised over £4.5K on the evening and a great night out for our patrons.

Thanks for all your help and special thanks to Abbie for putting on such a great night.


David, Nov 2018

The evening was great and everyone enjoyed. Helen did a fantastic job again, so please pass on our thanks.

Looking forward to next year already!


Angela, Apr 2018
Hi Jane

I understand the evening went very well and everyone had a great night, and we raised around £1500 for our charity Brainwave.

Everyone seemed to have a fantastic time and Erik was really knowledgeable. He was very organised and this helped us massively.

Thanks very much for your help with this.

Kind regards

David - Bromley High Parents Association, Nov 2017

Just a short note re the wine tasting on Friday, it was a great a night and Helen did a fantastic job. Please pass on our thanks to her and we look forward to holding it again next year.


Michael, Apr 2017
Hi Rachael and thanks again for Saturday evening - the feedback has been universally positive and we will definitely both recommend you and ThirtyFifty but use you again for future events. I am sure some of the participants will be ordering wine - some have only just recovered from Saturday as it ended up being a long and boozy night after you and Dan left!

I will look in detail at the subjects you mention in your email and certainly my eyes were opened at the quality of the Spy Valley wine as well as the 'pudding wine' - I thought all these years I didn't like white wine or sweet wine and stand corrected - both were superb!

Jenny, Apr 2017
Hi Jane,

It was fabulous, thank you! Everyone really enjoyed themselves and Erik was great with the crowd. We managed to raise £1,087 in total so we are really pleased with that.

Many thanks,

Anne, Oct 2016
Hi Jane
Thank you for organising the wine tasting, everything was great I think people really enjoyed the event, Chris was very good!!
Kind regards

Lindsay, Jun 2015
The event was excellent, we thought Gary was really knowledgeable and passionate about the wines, and he did a great job of controlling the increasingly inebriated crowd! I'm sure we'll be repeat customers next year, perhaps for sparkling wines or similar. Many thanks again.

Zoe, Mar 2015
Hi Jane, Thank you for your email all went well and raised a amazing £920 for the Alzhiemers Society. Garry had bit of a hard job with 60 people after a few bottles of wine had gone out, but everybody still enjoyed the night. I would highly recommend. Thank you again

Susan, Wimbledon Common Prep School PTA, Mar 2015
Hi Jane,
Garry was great thank you, our event was a success and everyone really enjoyed themselves.
Kind regards,

Ben (for Guide Dogs UK), Jan 2015
Dear Jane,

I just wanted to email and express my thanks for ThirtyFifty's involvement in my Cheese and Wine tasting evening last night. Abbie was a fantastic expert and taught us all about the 7 different paired wines and cheeses! I learnt many useful tips on storing, tasting and drinking wine and will utilize this when I buy my next crate!

You have a fantastic company, it was very easy to get the event organised with your help and the help of Abbie on the night. You will be pleased to know that the night raised £647.03 for my fundraising target in aid of Guide Dogs UK and with the corporate sponsorship I have from Residential Land Ltd who have agreed to double my fundraising total after the Marathon, that means last night effectively raised £1,294.06 for Guide Dogs UK.

Thank you once again, and I will no doubt be in touch again in the future if I organise another event like this one.

Very best wishes,

Lynne - Challenge for Life, Oct 2014
Everyone had a great time on Friday, Erik made the wine tasting both informative and good fun and the wine was rather good too! We made £253 for Challenge for Life - to quote Tesco every little helps!

Julie, Friends of Poplar Primary School, May 2014
Yes it all went very well, I think Abbie had her work cut out, as everyone was in high spirits (we don't get out often ;). Everyone I spoke to said it was an enjoyable evening and they learnt something. Many thanks for your help in organising.

Ranjit Bhathal, Feb 2014

I would like to say a very big thank you to you, and especially Rob who did a fantastic job presenting the wine tasting, not only did he make it fun but the laughter throughout the night was amazing.

On this night I managed to raise an amazing £1,546 for Ward 10 Birmingham's Children Hospital with the help of your fantastic charity package.

The night itself was very well organised, and Rob was not only professional but so easy going which made everyone feel at ease to participate. A lot was learnt here, but most of all it was a fun night and to top it all of we raised a lot of money.


Lois - Girl Guides, Oct 2013
Please pass on my thanks to Camilla for an excellent afternoon/evening on Saturday at Hautbois. Everyone enjoyed themselves and it was very informative.

Jen, Co-op , Sep 2013
Just wanted to drop a line to say a big thank you to Erik for last night, it went really well, everyone had lots of fun and many people have been very complimentary about Thirty Fifty and Erik as a host.

Thanks very much and I’d definitely recommend Thirty Fifty to anyone wanting to organise something similar!

Leonie, Silverhill School, Jun 2013
Please pass on our sincere thanks to Robert who hosted the wine & beer tasting for us last Saturday, he did an excellent job and we could not have been happier. Robert was knowledgeable and profession but also very friendly. He managed our 30 guests really well and was not at all fazed when they got a little noisy; he found a perfect balance of moving things forward but not rushing them and the evening was a roaring success. Thank you again, we would have no hesitation in using your company again.

Colin, Oct 2012
Thank you Jane, the feedback from the night was that it was fantastic. Chris was so full of energy with the perfect mix of humour and instruction. We all learned a bit and everyone that I spoke to said they would do it again!

Francine A, Mar 2012
Many thanks again Chris for an extremely enjoyable evening. You went down extremely well and impressed us all!

Leslie, Avantage, Sep 2011
On the 15th September we sponsored a Wine Charity evening. As usual we found Chris Scott to be on his form. He must be one of the most entertaining people I have met. He is so enthusiastic and enchanting when he is presenting to his audience.

He makes like hearted jokes and keeps the audience engaged at all times. His knowledge of wines is amazing. I would highly recommend Chris for any party or any event. Thank you for always providing the best entertainment on what could be a boring school night.

Mary G (Encore Africa charity), Nov 2010
The wine tasting night was a great success thanks. Managed to raise over £700 pounds for our charity which will go a long way. Erik was a fantastic host and engaged all of the guests really well. Have already been recommending you to my friends.

Judith, Crusader Travel, Jun 2010
Bruce has had a number of very nice comments about yesterday’s wine tasting boat cruise so many thanks to ThirtyFifty for all your hard work (and trust me, I KNOW how much hard work is involved in the preparation, the actual serving of the wine and the clearing up afterwards!)

Jenny Thorndycraft-Huggett, Apr 2010
Thank you very much for a great evening! It went down really well with everybody, Sam was a great host - she did a fab job!

Kelly Walsh, Gerrards Cross Tennis Club, Mar 2010
Just wanted to say a big thank you for Friday evening, all feedback so far has been very positive. A good evening all round. I think we managed to raise approximately £700 towards the club refurbishment which is a great start considering it was our first social fundraising event.

John Strawhorn, Mar 2010
Just a wee note to say how much we enjoyed our night with Toni - very entertaining and informative. Thank you!

Sandi Isted, Feb 2010
Last Friday was a great success. Thanks for helping us out so much on this one, we really appreciate it.

All feedback has been positive so far and I'm happy that the event went well. I enjoyed myself as did all my friends. My husband actually loves the 1st beer we tasted so that set him up beautifully. Thanks again!

Tammy, KPMG, Feb 2010
The evening was a great success & was enjoyed by all, I believe we raised over £4k for charity which is excellent.

The feedback I had from attendees was that they all had a great time & Chris kept it interesting at all times & I was told by several people that it was the most fun that they had had at a wine tasting.

Thanks again to you & Chris for your help in pulling this event off.

Catherine Bornet, Sep 2008
Just a little note to say a huge thankyou to you for a fantastic wine tasting evening. It was a great success and everyone has been repeating how much fun they had. It was a roaring success and had us all enjoying much wine and laughter. We raised lots for charity, of course the main reason for the evening, and was a great success all round!

Our clients say...

Thank you so much, the whole event was excellent. Robert was fantastic and really made the whole experience a lot of fun. The mother of the bride actually commented that she had been to a lot of wine tastings, and this was by far the best! I will definitely be recommending your company to others, and hopefully using you again in the future also!
