A memorial meal in honour of a father who died in a car crash has been a huge success, raising more than £1,000 for charity.
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.”
