A plethora of puddings has raised over £1,000 for The Exeter Leukaemia Fund. Throughout 2013, The Magdalen Chapter selected a different dessert on the menu as its fundraising pud and pledged to donate £1 from each sale to the hotel’s official charity, ELF.
 
General Manager Fiona Moores said: “ELF is a wonderful charity, offering support for individuals and families through unimaginably tough times. The charity pudding is simply one way in which we are supporting the charity’s incredible work. We are thrilled to end the year with such a fantastic total and look forward to raising even more in 2014.”
 
The fundraising pudding scheme has been in place at The Magdalen Chapter Hotel since October 2012. To date, diners have enjoyed over a thousand ELF desserts at the city centre hotel. Puddings featured have included a melt in the middle chocolate fondant, a sticky toffee pudding and a ginger pudding with butterscotch sauce and clotted cream.
 
The Magdalen Chapter has pledged to make the ELF fundraising pudding a staple to its restaurant menu into the New Year and beyond. The specific fundraising dessert changes depending on the seasonal availability of ingredients. For January, the new ELF pudding is a peanut butter parfait with chocolate mousse and a caramel sauce.
 
The Magdalen Chapter adopted ELF as its official charity shortly after the hotel’s opening in 2012. Over the past year, the hotel has hosted an array of fundraising receptions for ELF. During 2013, the hotel provided complimentary spa treatments for medical staff of the Haematology Centre at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital.
