BBC Children In Need 2011
Sir Terry Wogan's Auction - the Raymond Blanc Experience raises £15,500
08 November 2011
Friday 18 November is the date for this year's BBC Children in Need fundraising. On the previous Sunday, 13 November, Sir Terry Wogan conducted his very special auction of prizes and experiences that money can't buy, to raise funds for Children in Need.
Raymond Blanc and his team at Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons have been loyal supporters of Sir Terry's fundraising efforts for Children in Need, and this year offered The Raymond Blanc Experience to the highest bidder - and nine friends:

Your group of you and 9 friends (that’s 10 people altogether) will be

You'll get access to all areas and a behind the scenes tour of Le Manoir.
There'll be a day's personal tuition, morning coffee and afternoon tea and an informal lunch.
And course certificates will be presented after tea.
Each guest will also go home with a chef's jacket, Raymond's
latest book personally signed and dedicated, a Meyer chef's pan and a

And Raymond himself will be on hand – naturellement!
