A CELEBRITY chef has teamed up with Hope House Tŷ Gobaith children’s hospices to offer 60 lucky diners a three course meal.

Bryn Williams, originally from Denbigh, will host the 'Let’s Do Dinner event' at his Porth Eirias restaurant in Colwyn Bay. Diners will also receive a welcome drink as well as canapés and the evening will include an auction, raffle and games.

Every penny raised on the night will be doubled by a match-funding pot under the Final Moments Matter campaign which runs in November.

Bryn said: “We’re looking forward to welcoming guests in our usual style to enjoy some great food and help raise money to support seriously ill local children and their families.

“I’ve designed the menu to reflect the best of local produce with some firm favourites, and of course, our signature Porth Eirias Baked Alaska.

“Supporting Tŷ Gobaith is something all the staff here are very proud to do."

Vanessa Marubbi, Tŷ Gobaith fundraiser, said: “We are delighted to be bringing Let’s Do Dinner to Porth Eirias, we can’t thank Bryn enough for his support.

“If you are looking for fine dining with a dash of feel good make sure you book early, you’re in for a fabulous evening raising funds."

The event will take place on November 18. Anyone that isn't able to make it is encouraged to host their own dinner party. Sign up for a free fundraising pack on the hospice's website.

Tickets are £75 per person and tables of four or more can be booked via reservations@portheirias.com or call (01492) 533700. Individual tickets can be purchased and you will be placed at a table with fellow diners.

Bryn shot to fame when he took on and beat the best chefs in the country to cook the fish course for the Queen’s 80th birthday celebrations on the hit BBC programme, Great British Menu.

He has since gone on to write books and appear regularly on television, having been trained by some of the sector’s big names, including Marco Pierre White and Michel Roux. His seafront bistro at Colwyn Bay’s Porth Eirias opened in 2015.

Bryn married Sharleen Spiteri, the lead singer of the Scottish band Texas, at St Tyrnog's Church, in Llandyrnog, on September 8 2018. 

Tŷ Gobaith children’s hospices in Conwy and Oswestry support more than 750 families who are either caring for a terminally ill child, or whose child has died.
