Join us as we host a charity fundraising banquet in memory of Filippo Corsini - a young Italian who tragically died in a London cycling accident in October 2016. All proceeds will be donated to the London Cycling Campaign (LCC).

On Thursday 19th March, the Corsini family invite you to Petersham Nurseries as they host a very special fundraising banquet to reduce road danger in London to cyclists. All proceeds from the dinner will go to the London Cycling Campaign (LCC), a London based charity chosen by the Corsini family.

LCC’s mission is it to transform London into a city where anyone who wants to ride our City’s streets can do so enjoyably and safely.

Following from last year’s event, which raised a stunning £35,000, the family and LCC have launched the Fico Fund dedicated to reducing the systematic dangers cyclists face. This includes a new strand of work to change the justice system, so that it genuinely deters life-threatening behaviour on our roads as well as treating the victims of road collisions and their loved ones with fairness and compassion they deserve.

For the event, guests will be served a spring banquet within our candlelight glasshouse restaurant Petersham Nurseries Café. Tickets include a three-course feasting-style sharing menu, a glass of prosecco on arrival with wines from the Corsini estate in Chianti. The banquet will be hosted by Italian television presenter Francesco da Mosto and there will be speeches by Fillippo’s father, Duccio Corsini and from the CEO of London Cycling Campaign Dr. Ashok Sinha, which will be followed by a charity auction of some exclusive Italian wines.

We hope you can join us for this special and very worthy fundraising event.

NB tickets are non refundable.
