Leading figures from the UK’s food and hospitality industry raised £135,000 at a gala event organised by international development charity Farm Africa on Thursday, April 21, 2016. The money will help Farm Africa to continue reducing poverty in eastern Africa by enabling farmers across the region to grow themselves out of poverty.
