The Courthouse, Cheshire hosted its first successful charity evening, helping to raise an impressive £30,000 for two children’s cancer charities. Hogarth’s Great Shave Off was held in the Barristers Restaurant & Bar with Paul Hogarth losing his silver locks for the occasion.
Paul Hogarth will donate the remarkable £30,000 to two worthy and hardworking charities; Teenage Cancer Trust and Destination Florida.
The first charity chosen is Teenage Cancer Trust, who work to provide support and treatment for young people suffering from cancer, and with 7 young people a day being diagnosed with cancer in the UK.
The second charity that Paul is supporting is Destination Florida, which offers children who have life threatening illnesses, the once in a lifetime opportunity of a trip to Florida. Here they will visit all the major theme parks, giving them an unforgettable and fun-filled experience, and their parents some well-deserved and needed rest.
Dominic Heywood, co-founder of Flat Cap Hotels, commented: “We are amazed by the generosity of everyone that attended last night. It was a pleasure to host the evening at The Courthouse and to see the local Cheshire community coming together to support Paul, the charities and also our new venture.”
Paul is Chief Executive Officer of Tatton Asset Mgmt Plc. He also founded Bankhall PMS Limited and is Founder and Senior Partner at Paradigm Management Partners Inc and Paradigm Partners LLP.
The Courthouse officially opened its doors in July after a complete renovation of the former Knutsford Crown Court. The history and grandeur style of the grade II listed property has been kept, using original features designed by George Moneypenny in 1818. The Barristers Restaurant & Bar provides 90 covers, serving British seasonal menus led by Executive Chef Stephen Tuke. The restaurant now offers lunch, afternoon tea and an evening menu.
