The meal, which was organised by James Jay - head chef at the White Horse in Easton - saw 20 diners enjoy a luxurious five-course meal, raising £1,100 in aid of road safety charity Brake.

Mr Jay’s good friend and former colleague Ciara Lee sadly lost her husband Eddy in July after he was involved in a collision with a lorry. He left behind a two-year-old son, Seren Ying Hei.

Mrs Lee said: “James and his team did an amazing job creating a really intimate evening where we could totally relax and enjoy the exceptional food.

“My husband has become a statistic. He should have been there eating with us. That cruel reality will keep us fundraising for Brake, supporting their mission to make the roads safer.”
