Chefs give Hope to young­sters

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - YOUR NEWS -

Res­tau­ra­teur Ade­bola Adeshina teamed up with some lead­ing chefs in the area to host a charity night at his vil­lage restau­rant.

The ex­ec­u­tive chef at The Chubby Cas­tor, on Peter­bor­ough Road, put on the fundrais­ing din­ner in aid of Stam­ford-based Anna’s Hope, af­ter be­ing moved by the work the charity does with chil­dren af­fected by brain tu­mours.

Ade, the ex­ec­u­tive chef at the Miche­lin Guide-rec­om­mended fine din­ing restau­rant, en­listed the help of his head chef Ge­orge West, MasterChef quar­ter-fi­nal­ist Si­mon Spooner and Chris Huggett, the chef be­hind the Ora Cul­tro pop-up restau­rant in Oun­dle, to put on a six­course din­ner last Thurs­day.

A si­lent auc­tion raised £1,400 for the charity.

Ca­role Hughes, founder of Anna’s Hope with hus­band Rob, was full of praise for the chefs and the “great evening of food and dink”.

She said: “I got in­vited along to meet Ade, who had heard about our charity.

“We spoke and he was in awe of the work that we do, and said he would like to do some­thing for us. From there he set about putting to­gether a won­der­ful evening which raised a fan­tas­tic amount of money for our charity - money which will make a real dif­fer­ence for chil­dren all across the East of Eng­land.

“Brain tu­mours are the big­gest can­cer killers of chil­dren and for sur­vivors their lives can be se­verely com­pro­mised - it af­fects the whole fam­ily.

“Anna’s Hope funds neuro re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion for those chil­dren right across the East of Eng­land, and we make sure ev­ery child that needs it ben­e­fits from ev­ery penny we raise, so I would like to thank ev­ery­one who helped at the restau­rant last week.”

Anna’s Hope will be host­ing the 5k fun run at this Sun­day’s Great East­ern Run and you will find Ca­role and the team on the Em­bank­ment be­fore and af­ter the race.
