The Tanner brothers are renowned for their great food, but now they have also helped cook up vital funds for local charity Childrens Hospice South West.



The fine dining experience of Tanners Restaurant was enjoyed by hundreds of guests as part of the celebrity chefs CHSW Charity Lunches initiative in January, February and March of this year. They recently presented the charity with 1,910 in customer donations, which when gift aid is added could come to nearly 2,500.



Chris and James Tanner say:


We are delighted to have supported Childrens Hospice South Wests Precious Lives Appeal with our charity lunches. They have been an amazing success and raised a great amount for CHSW to put towards completing the new childrens hospice Little Harbour. We look forward to running more CHSW charity lunches at Tanners later in the year.



Childrens Hospice South West is the only organisation in the region providing specialist hospice care for families with children who are not expected to reach adulthood. The charitys homely hospices Little Bridge House in North Devon, Charlton Farm in North Somerset, and eventually Little Harbour in Cornwall which is due to open by the end of the year provide such families with a warm welcome, a listening ear, expert care, fantastic facilities, and the rare opportunity for a break. They support the families throughout the life of the child, through bereavement, and beyond for as long as they need it.



Emma Lloyd, Childrens Hospice South Wests Head of Fundraising (West), says:


A huge thank you to Chris, James, the team at Tanners, and all their customers. Together they have raised a significant amount for our special new childrens hospice for families from Plymouth and Cornwall.


Our thanks also to Devonshire Tea and Eco Bags Ltd for supporting the charity lunches by donating their products for a lucky diner to win every week.


The Tanners Charity Lunches are such a delicious way to help, were sure that many local people will be looking forward to their return as much as we are!



Tanners Restaurant plans to host further Childrens Hospice South West Charity Lunches later on in the year look out for further details!
