Celebrity chef Mark Lloyd will host a charity cooking evening in Heanor, to rustle up support for autism.
The TV chef will entertain guests with culinary demonstrations and tastings to raise money for NORSACA, the largest autism charity in the East Midlands.
Mark, who appeared on shows such as River Cottage and Hairy Bikers, said the key ingredient to helping someone with autism was support.
He said: “Autism touches the lives of 2.7 million every day. The work NORSACA does is crucial for local families who otherwise might not get the level of support they need.”
NORSACA offers a range of services to support people affected by autism, including family services, a specialist school and outreach and residential services.
The foodie evening will be held at NORSACA’s Mundy Street day service centre on Tuesday, September 9, times and entrance details are to be confirmed.
Melanie Howard, NORSACA fund generation manager said: “The evening is a great chance to thank people who have supported us.”
