This is already an annual event for the NSPCC in London and Edinburgh, and I am delighted that we're now making it happen in Belfast.

Do you know your Sancerre from your Chablis, your claret from your Barolo? If you do and you are up for a challenge then James Nicholson Wine Merchant and the NSPCC have thrown down the gauntlet to members of the local business community, urging them to pit their wits against corporate colleagues in Northern Ireland’s first ChildLine Fine Wine Challenge.
Looking forward to the inaugural event on June 3 at Belfast Harbour Commissioners, James Nicholson encouraged businesses to get involved and help raise funds for the NSPCC’s ChildLine service:
“Smart businesses in Northern Ireland know their wines and are committed to making a difference. The Fine Wine Challenge is the first competition of its kind to take place here and will enable companies to come together to raise money for a very worthy cause. Our team of experts has handpicked a selection of quality wines that will make this a night to remember, so please join us as we help to raise funds for ChildLine.”
The ChildLine Fine Wine Challenge will be supported and attended by key corporate organisations from across Northern Ireland, who will sample a range of unusual and exclusive wines provided by fine wine specialist and event sponsor, James Nicholson Wine Merchant. Under the watchful eyes of hosts James Nicholson and Tim McGarry, guests will be put through their paces in an entertaining, interactive quiz as they battle it out to win the ChildLine Fine Wine Challenge Trophy.
Dearbhla McGrath, NSPCC development manager, said: “This is already an annual event for the NSPCC in London and Edinburgh, and I am delighted that we're now making it happen in Belfast.
“Given Northern Ireland’s status as a vibrant business hub, it is high time that our capital city hosted this prestigious event. Local companies can come along, test their knowledge and tantalise their taste buds, during what promises to be a very enjoyable evening.
“Most importantly, the support of local business people will help the NSPCC raise the funds it needs to ensure that every child who plucks up the courage to contact ChildLine gets to speak to one of our counsellors.”
