MasterChef winner Jane's recipe for success

It was a recipe for success – and BBC MasterChef 2016 champion Jane Devonshire was at the heart of producing a winning result for Ark Cancer Centre Charity at two special Hampshire Food Festival events.

On July 6, 10 food lovers gathered at The Myers Touch in Kings Worthy, near Winchester, to enjoy a fabulous Fine Dining Experience as Jane created a marvellous menu that showcased Hampshire's finest ingredients.

Broughton Buffalo, watercress, wasabi, strawberries and black garlic were just a few of the tasty items on the menu during the evening.

Finch Group golf day is a major success

A thriving Basingstoke-based business teed up a fundraising success by holding a Charity Golf Day in support of Ark Cancer Centre Charity.

Eighteen teams took part in the fundraising event organised and hosted by independent insurance brokers Finch Group, which has offices in Basingstoke, Reading, Fleet, Southampton, and the Isle of Wight.

Test Valley Golf Club, near Overton, was the setting for the fun fundraising day on May 4 in aid of the cancer charity, which is raising £5million towards a much-needed unique local cancer treatment centre.

Ark to Arc riders raise more than £70,000

They did it! The fabulous and formidable Arkriders have completed the Ark to Arc challenge – and they are on course to raise more than £70,000.

After four gruelling days in the saddle, the super cyclists rode round the Arc de Triomphe to the final meeting point at the Eiffel Tower at the end of a memorable journey that took them from Basingstoke to the heart of Paris.

The 265-mile journey was an emotional rollercoaster, and no more so than on the final afternoon after cyclist Simon Finch came off his bike just 20 miles from the finish and suffered a broken collarbone.
