Dine at Mine for Rowcroft at Alf's
1st to 31st October

Dine at Mine Club....Fundraising never tasted so good....!!

At Alf's we are really keen to support local charities and Rowcroft Hospice is one which is particularly close to our hearts.
For the month of October we are taking part in the Dine at Mine Club, which we think is a fab idea!

Pop in to Alf's for lunch in October and choose the Warm Roasted Squash & Halloumi Salad and a percentage of the profits will go directly to Rowcroft.

Other restaurants and cafes supporting Dine at Mine include;
The Royal Seven Stars Hotel - Totnes
Cafe Alf Resco - Dartmouth
Rugglestone Inn - Widecombe-in-the-Moor
Hanbury's - Babbacombe
Beamers - Brixham
Shoreline - Paignton
One World Cafe - Torquay
Edgemoor House - Bovey Tracy
The Pizza Cafe - Newton Abbot

You can also take part in Dine at Mine at home by holding a dinner party in aid of Rowcroft! There are loads of tasty ways to fundraise with cooking whilst raising scrumptious sums of money for the hospice.

Dine at Mine gives you the chance to invite your friends and family around for an evening of home cooking – everyone pays an amount for their dinner and all the proceeds come to Rowcroft! Your evening is unique and you can organise it any way you wish - from a three course formal meal, gastro cuisine or a safari supper!
