Every ticket sold will directly fund a patient’s treatment at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham

Head Chef of The Edgbaston Olivier Briault said: ‘I personally want to create something exceptionally special for this evening after being inspired by so many amazing and inspirational stories after visiting the Centre for Clinical Haematology with the team last week. I will be personally creating and supplying the Afternoon Tea and 100% of the ticket sales will be going to Cure Leukaemia’
