A chocolate making master class with acclaimed chocolatier Paul A Young, dinner at home catered by Michelin starred chef Angela Hartnett, and the chance to create a bespoke brownie flavour with Bad Brownie are among the lots on offer in a silent auction to raise funds for HIV and sexual health charity Terrence Higgins Trust.

The auction is being launched online in the run up to the charity’s annual Supper Club, which sees supporters host fundraising dinner parties in around 50 of London’s top restaurants. For the first two weeks of October, foodies can visit the website and bid for a range of gastronomic delights, including a bread making workshop and dinner with ballet dancers Lauren Cuthbertson and Natalia Osipova. Funds raised will be used by Terrence Higgins Trust to support people living with and affected by HIV.

This year, the Supper Club takes place on Wednesday 8 October. Guests who attend the event donate £175 each to dine at some of London’s most iconic restaurants, from the traditional fare and décor of Wilton’s or Venetian cuisine at Polpo, to Ottolenghi’s Middle Eastern flavours or contemporary British cuisine at Aqua Shard. After dinner, guests are whisked away to a lively after party at the Underglobe, where they can dance the night away with live entertainment and cocktails from Six O’clock Gin.

Sonya Trivedy, Director of Fundraising at Terrence Higgins Trust, said: ‘The Supper Club is always a great night, but as not all of our supporters are based in London, we wanted to spread the foodie love even wider this year. We’ve been very lucky to have some fantastic prizes donated, from designing a new brownie flavour to afternoon tea with Cake Boy.’

The silent auction runs from 1-15 October.
