Host a dinner party or eat out to raise money for Tapping House, the Norfolk Hospice at Snettisham

People are being challenged to test their culinary skills and host a dinner party for their friends – all in the name of charity.

The Great Norfolk Dinner Party will run until the end of the month to raise funds for The Norfolk Hospice.

The Snettisham-based charity wants people to throw a dinner party using menus and recipes from TV chefs Galton Blackiston and Chris Coubrough, and the owners of the Michelin starred Neptune Inn, in Old Hunstanton.

Charity fundraiser Amanda Standen said the menus and recipes catered for all abilities from the enthusiastic beginner to the aspiring accomplished chef. She said: 'Invite your friends and colleagues to enjoy a dinner party, with diners making a donation at the end of the evening to the hospice, relating to how much they think the experience was worth.'

The hospice is hoping to raise thousands of pounds to help continue its work providing palliative care for people with cancer, neurological and other life-limiting conditions.

A number of other restaurants are supporting the event and have agreed to give Tapping House a percentage of their profits from lunch or dinner.
