TV chefs back Moville children's charity 19.04.17

TOP TV chefs will battle it out in a celebrity cook-off at the Redcastle Hotel next week in aid of local charity The Victoria Thompson Scholarship.
Tony Singh, from BBC’s Saturday Kitchen, will be joining forces with Donegal’s own celebrity chef Brian McDermott and the hotel’s Gordon Smyth for what promises to be a night of sizzling cooking and craic.
Baby Victoria, from Moville, died in 2012 aged just nine months after she was diagnosed with the rare, life-limiting condition leukodystropky.

Her parents, Brian and Sharon, and the local community have so far raised more than €200,000 in her memory for Ireland’s children’s hospice, LauraLynn, and to help train nurses in palliative children’s care.
“There are an estimated 4,000 life-limited children in Ireland,” explained Victoria’s mother Sharon.
“They have complex medical needs, but sadly there are very few services available to them.
“The Redcastle Hotel and its staff have always been very generous in helping us remember our Victoria, and other children like her, and they’ve already pledged a substantial amount this year to our annual signage rental auction.
“We’re delighted that Tony Singh is making his first visit to Inishowen to support us, and we’re always grateful for the wonderful support of local chefs Brian McDermott and Gordon Smyth.
“Ever since we started fundraising in Victoria’s memory we’ve been overwhelmed by the support and generosity we’ve received from people locally, and we can’t thank you enough for coming out and supporting us at the cook-off.”
The Thursday Night Live Cook-Off in aid of The Victoria Thompson Scholarship will be held on April 27, 2017 at 8pm.
Tickets are available priced €20 – including a glass of bubbly - from the hotel on 074 93 85555. Early booking is advised.
