EARTHQUAKE FUNDRAISER – Cook for Turkey & Syria

Blog · Posted May 31, 2023

The Mainstreet team invited you to join us for a pop-up dinner, Cooking for Turkey and Syria on Wed 31st May.

We will be offering a three-course dinner with a menu inspired by the food of the region.


Like you, we have been watching in horror at the devastating impact of the earthquakes in Turkey and Syria, and wondering how we can help.

Our community came together so brilliantly last year at our Cook for Ukraine event, we thought it would be wonderful to host another fundraising dinner.

As the news cycle moves on, it’s more important than ever that we don’t simply forget the suffering of tens of thousands of people in the fallout from this tragedy.


We are delighted to announce that we raised £1662 that was split equally between Kahramanmaras Earthquake Emergency Relief Fund (Turkey) and White Helmets (Syria).
