THE FELIX PROJECT
A London-based UK charity set up in 2016 by entrepreneur, Justin Byam Shaw. The Felix Project rescues good food that cannot be sold and would otherwise go to waste. This is high-quality and nutritious, including a high proportion of fresh fruit and vegetables, baked goods, salads, meat and fish. They collect or receive food from 170 suppliers, including supermarkets, wholesalers, farms, restaurants and delis. They sort and then deliver this food to charities that cook meals and prepare food parcels for vulnerable people and to primary schools to distribute to children and their families.

Charles Heidsieck is one of the great names of Champagne and produces some of the finest cuvées. Founded in 1851 by Charles-Camille Heidsieck, the original 'Champagne Charlie' who popularised champagne in America in the 1850s,the foundation of its modern fame rests on the unrivalled quality of its wines, which receive countless awards and accolades year after year. This success is attributable to the strength and depth of their winemaking team over the past three decades: Daniel Thibault, Régis Camus, Thierry Roset and Cyril Brun have between them been awarded 'Sparkling Winemaker of the Year' at the International Wine Challenge sixteen times. No other house has won more than twice. Charles Heidsieck Brut Réserve is remarkable due to the inclusion of 40% reserve wines from a multitude of vintages (up to 20 years old) and a minimum three year’s ageing in vast and rare Crayeres (chalk cellars). Charles Heidsieck sources wines from 60 different crus in the Champagne region and grapes coming from their own vineyards are grown sustainably as the House is both certified HVE (High Environmental Value) and VdC (Sustainable viticulture in Champagne).
