Community comes together for Cookery Demonstration powered by Calor

On Wednesday evening, April 11th 2018, a Calor Gas cooking kitchen was responsible for the delicious smells coming from the Faughanvale Presbyterian Church Hall where a cookery demonstration and auction in aid of the village of Eglington’s Flood Fund took place. 

Calor proudly supported the event which saw the three churches of Eglington; Star of the Sea Church, St. Canices Parish Church and Faughanvale Prebysterian church, join together to deliver an evening of food, fun and fundraising. Cooking in the Calor kitchen was multi award-winning Chef Ian Orr, of Browns Bonds Hill Group. Chef Orr delighted the packed audience of almost 350 attendees with the aroma of lrish traditional Lamb, a dish he recently cooked up on BBC’s Saturday Kitchen Live.

The evening formed part of a series of events that have been taking place throughout the region since the village of Eglinton was devastated by floods in August 2017. The community of Eglinton, and the surrounding Faughanvale region, raised almost £3000 on the night of the cookery demonstration which will help those affected, some of whom are only now returning to their homes since the floods.

“The local community is very important to both Calor Direct and Calor Gas, and we always look for ways to support our the communities in which we operate, and strengthen our links with them. As a supplier to Brown’s Restaurant kitchen, when Chef Ian Orr approached us to support this event, we were absolutely delighted to do so. Although difficult to do, a positive which must be taken from the flood, which devastated the community in August 2017, is that it has resulted in massive community fundraising efforts, the Eglington community is a force. Everyone in the area places a huge amount of important on playing an active role in their community, and this is a value that we share in Calor”
