Hove diners raise cash for African charity at food event
11:20am Wednesday 17th July 2013 in News
Foodies gorged on a feast of culinary delights at a charity fundraising evening.
L’Eglise French restaurant in Church Road, Hove, opened its doors to scores of diners to raise money for The House That Zac Built – a soon-to-be housing charity that operates in rural Africa.
The group is run by two teenage best friends from Brighton who are hoping to raise £5,000 to build sustainable housing for a family in Tanzania.
The restaurant offered a two-course dinner menu for £20 – half of which went straight to The House That Zac Built.
More than 40 people turned up for dinner, raising £750 in the process.
Max Martin, of The House That Zac Built, said: “We had a lot of donations for both food and prizes for a raffle.
“I’d like to thank the Fresh Fish Shop in Haywards Heath, Fin and Farm in Brighton, Richard Vaughan in Huntsham Farm in Hertfordshire and The Cheeseman in Brighton.
“Also, all from Brighton, Karl Jones from Moshimo Restaurant, Nick Mosely from the Brighton and Hove Food and Drink Festival, Sam Metcalfe of Sam’s of Brighton, suppliers Ritter Courivaud and Rob from Ghost Walk Brighton.”
