Organisers of a brand-new cheese and wine experience are calling on the public to sign up for an evening of tasty fundraising – all in aid of the region’s main cancer charity.

Held at Carriages in Oswestry, the Cheese and Wine Night allows attendees to try five tasting wines explained by Howard Jones of Momentum Wines – an Oswestry-based wine merchant. There will also be a selection of local cheeses donated by Churncote Farmshop.

This brand-new event in the Lingen Davies Cancer Fund’s calendar will be held on Friday, 21st October at 7.30pm.

Howard Jones, from Momentum Wines, said: “The Cheese and Wine Night is the perfect opportunity to sample, and learn about new wines whilst raising money for a great cause.”

Lizzy Coleman, Events Officer for Lingen Davies, said: “We are very excited to bring a new event to our calendar. The Cheese and Wine Night is the perfect occasion to catch up with friends and family whilst trying a fantastic selection of wines and cheeses. I must say a very big thank you to Churncote Farmshop for their kind donation of cheeses.

“Every penny raised from this event will go towards supporting cancer patients in Shropshire and Mid Wales, and allow us to continue growing our cancer awareness and prevention work,” she added.

Lingen Davies Cancer Fund, based at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital, works to enhance and improve the situation for cancer patients throughout Shropshire and Mid Wales.

Tickets to the event are £25 to include five tasting wines and five perfectly paired cheeses and are available from or by calling the office on 01743 492396.
