Top impressionist to host BDCI’s Annual Festival Dinner
Popular impressionist and comedian Rory Bremner will be hosting this year’s Butchers’ and Drovers’ Charitable Institution (BDCI) Annual Festival Dinner.
Bremner is well-known for his political satire and his impersonations of British public figures. Past impressions have included Jeremy Clarkson, Roger Moore and Tony Blair. His television appearances include Mock the Week and Whose Line is it Anyway?
BDCI is the meat industry’s own trade charity. It provides support to those previously involved in the trade, but who can no longer work due to hard times. Widows, dependents and children are also eligible for assistance where necessary.
This year’s festival chairman, Rose Price, said: “The Festival Dinner is a great night out, but ultimately it is all about raising funds for our industry charity. As festival chairman, it is my job to raise as much money as possible, so I will be calling on the industry to provide support in the form of auction prizes and advertising in the Festival Dinner brochure.”
The charity assists those in need by two methods: offering one-off grants to help towards a major expense, and giving assistance towards fees in nursing and residential homes.
The dinner is due to take place on 16 October at The Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, London.
