On 21st March 2017, we were proud to support our long standing customer Jamie Oliver and UKHarvest with Chefs Jackets for their CEO CookOff.
Channelling their competitive spirit, they prepared a banquet for hundreds of everyday heroes who work in UK schools and hospitals. In the run up to the event, the CEOs (and their companies) worked hard towards fundraising targets. This money will be split between UKHarvest, who save quality surplus food from going to landfill and redistribute it to people in need, and food education schemes across the UK via the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation.
The chefs who took part on the night included Angela Hartnett, Atul Kochhar, Bill Granger and Jamie himself. The CEO’s who cooked and fundraised included Jimmy Wales of Wikipedia, Fiona Dawson of Mars and Craig Inglis of John Lewis.
Jamie Oliver himself was so impressed with the chefs wear that he tweeted following the event “Thank you @LondonLinen for providing the chefs whites for the #UKCEOCookOff. They looked brilliant!”.
