Over 60 people attended a special charity dinner last week hosted by award-winning Hexham restaurant Bouchon Bistrot, raising £466 for Tynedale Hospice at Home.

The event was a first for Tynedale Hospice at Home and Bouchon but will definitely not be the last.

Bouchon’s Gregory Bureau said:  “We wanted to do something to support Tynedale Hospice at Home as it’s a wonderful local cause and does so much good work in the community. The event was great fun and I was delighted to see such a good turnout on the night.  I would like to say a huge thanks to everyone who booked a table and supported the evening.”

Cathy Bates, Tynedale Hospice at Home’s Senior Community Fundraiser, added: “Bouchon is a really special restaurant and Greg and his team did a fantastic job on the night, creating a special menu for everyone who attended. The service and food was excellent and the amount raised will make a huge difference to the people who need our services.

“We’ll definitely make sure we have another great night at Bouchon on our fundraising menu in the future!”
