Come Dine with Me

‘Come Dine For Spencer’ is a charity in memory of one of the ContestantsOriginal dinner party

A charity has been formed by a team of ‘Come Dine with Me’ contestants, in memory of fellow contestant Spencer Uren, with the aim of having fun whilst raising funds for Basingstoke and North Hampshire cancer treatment.

This project is focusing in the first instance in two areas. Firstly, they say ” our priority is the people undergoing Cancer treatment; it is both daunting and emotional for all.  Chemotherapy is very important, yet time consuming.  We plan to make it as comfortable as possible for patients and their families.  We would like to improve the waiting room and family room area of the Elizabeth Hall Centre with a refurbishment and comfortable furnishings.  And to help pass the time waiting receiving treatment, we want to give free Internet access, TV’s and games such as X-boxes and PlayStations”.

So  —- You have watched the show and shouted out, ‘I can do a better than that!’  Well this is your opportunity to prove it, to host YOUR very own ‘Come Dine For Spencer’ evening and raise money for Cancer.

Invite your friends and family, cook them a delicious meal and ask them to make a contribution to ‘Come Dine with Spencer’,  the value of their contribution is dependent on the score they give you.  Download our scorecards and ask them to score your meal.  Whatever they score is their personal donation to our charity, so a score of 8 would equal £8.00. Ensure they play fair though!

Consider making it a group effort. Ask your guests to return the favour and invite the same group to a follow-up ‘Come Dine For Spencer’ evening at theirs, where you get to score them.  That’s when the competition really starts heating up.

Make it fun, and maybe consider a theme for your dinner party. We are big fans of Paella and Pyjama Parties, with a large jug of sangria!

How about a Mexican Night, Tapas Night, Italian, French, American cuisine, the list is endless, incorporate a Murder Mystery or even a Karaoke competition.

We plan to keep this charity site ongoing, for at least the next year or two, so BBQ’s in the summer could be considered too.

You could replicate a ‘Come Dine with Me’ menu, as cooked by a contestant of the show; demonstrate how it should be done, with a touch of your own creative flair!
