Ivy manager joins Pied Piper as Trustee
By Sarah Wood | 31st July 2020
A well known figure on the Cheltenham scene is the newest member of Pied Piper's Board of Trustees.
Steven Wilmer is general manager at the Ivy Brasserie and a has welcomed many local businesses and celebrity guests into his Montpellier restaurant. He has been involved with the Gloucestershire charity for sick and disabled children for a year or two as an active member of the Promotion Board and brings over 16 years customer hospitality experience to the charity.
In lockdown, Steven held the Ivy Cocktail Masterclasses which raised £2,000 for Pied Piper. The virtual Zoom cocktail sessions with his bar manager, Tom Palmer, were very popular. He is also very generous with auction and raffle prizes, and helps stage the charity's annual ball, using his excellent hospitality skills and reach in the business community.
Chairman Nick Broady said: "We are pleased to welcome Steven as a trustee, a well deserved appointment. I would also like to thank Suzanne Hall-Gibbins for her time during the last couple of years, as she steps down due to her business commitments. We have a dynamic and hard working trustees team, looking forward to exciting fundraising campaigns as we enter new times for charities."
This week the charity has been running a virtual cycle ride in place of its annual Sportive. Currently they are just short of £4000 and the event runs til the end of Sunday at www.pedal4piedpiper.co.uk .
