A dinner which used produce sourced within 50 miles of Axminster has raised nearly £800 for a healthy eating charity.
The ‘50-mile dinner’ was held at River Cottage in Axminster to raise funds for Axminster charity Health and Local Food for Families (HALFF).
Dozens of diners - including participants from HALFF’s courses, business directors, trustees, and staff - enjoyed the evening.
Emma Styles welcomed guests, while Tiggy Parry gave an overview of the charity, which works with vulnerable groups.
The chef for the night introduced the menu - a selection of local cheese, duck, beef and fish and more.
