A charity dinner hosted by Bouchon Bistrot in Hexham has raised £466 for Tynedale Hospice at Home.
The special event, which took place on Wednesday, 4 July was attended by 61 people and included a special three course meal devised especially for the fundraising evening.
Owner of Bouchon Bistrot, 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 event.”

The service and food was excellent and the amount raised will make a huge difference to the people who need our services.”
