Our 15th Birthday Celebration hosted at The Mansion was a really special night; a chance to thank everyone who has helped us along the way & raise money for two charities chosen by our employees - Multiple Sclerosis & Leeds Community Foundation.
The night was enjoyed by all - the comments & thanks were appreciated by the staff who looked after us on the night and the chefs produced a spectacular meal. The evening culminated with a performance from Carolynne Poole & a slave auction which raised over £10,000 for our charities.
The Internal trials for the menu at our 15th Birthday Party were an amazing experience & we think we've come up with a menu to live up to our name!
A few sneak preview shots to wet the appetite:

Dine have been offsetting carbon for events that we've undertaken for a couple of years now. This scheme has really made us focus on our green credentials across the group, and as a consequence we've all been recycling our bottles, paper, card, switching off lights and lift sharing wherever possible, and not just at work!
The carbon offsetting has been a really worthwhile project, but we're now working on some new ideas as to how to reward our most loyal customers - more to follow when we've perfected our offering..
