Refugee Action has unveiled a ‘World Food Night’ campaign, launched by Intermarketing at an international dinner party which raised over £1,000.

The campaign encourages dinner parties to ‘cook up a recipe for change’ to take place all over the country in support of Refugee Action, with diners asked to make a charitable donation for their dinner.

The Intermarketing launch event at HEART in Headingley included an auction and raffle with prizes donated by local businesses, and the management team washed up after the guests left.

Jamie Allan, managing partner at Intermarketing, said: “Intermarketing has been in Headingley for 24 years and we’re very proud to be working with the local business community to raise awareness of Refugee Action. The support on the night was amazing from the local area and helped raise valuable funds for Refugee Action, while sampling some fantastic international food.”

Aidan Hallett, charity area manager, added: “The event was a magnificent launch for the World Food Night campaign, and it was great to see such great support from local restaurants and cafes that donated such lovely food. Local businesses stumped up some great raffle prizes and the enthusiasm of the guests was reflected in their fantastic generosity.

“During my twelve years with Refugee Action I have regularly been impressed by the enthusiastic support and generosity of people as they learn about refugees for the first time, and this event was no exception. With this sort of support the word will spread and the work can go on!”
