Foodservice buying and marketing group Caterforce raised over £48,000 during a Gala Charity Dinner Dance at London's Natural History Museum on 29 June.

The gala, which was attended by mroe than 200 industry professionals, was in aid of FareShare, a charity that redistributes surplus food to over 700 charities and community groups including breakfast clubs for disadvantaged children, homeless shelters, luncheon clubs for older people, and domestic violence refuges.

Lindsay Boswell, chief executive at FareShare, said: "We are grateful to Caterforce for choosing FareShare as their charity partner for their 25th anniversary, and would like to thank everyone that supported us so generously at the gala dinner. The amount raised will enable the charities and community groups that we support to provide 193,000 more meals for hungry and vulnerable people across the UK, and will make a huge difference to many people."

Group managing director at Caterforce, Nick Redford, said: "We are excited to mark 25 years of the Caterforce group. The event has been a great opportunity to celebrate with our members and suppliers, but to also give something back. FareShare is a wonderful organisation, which supports charities and community groups to redistribute surplus products from the food industry. We are proud to have partnered with them on this exciting initiative."
