One of Calderdale’s longest established restaurants has unveiled a brand new look and menu at an event raising £2,425 for charity.

La Cachette Bistrot in Elland officially re-launched with an invitation only dining experience, donating all of the profit from the ticket sales to the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice.

Over 85 people attended the fundraising event to celebrate the re-launch of the restaurant, which closed on 22 August to undergo an extensive programme of refurbishment including a redesigned art nouveau inspired interior and exterior.

In addition to ticket sales donations, La Cachette raised a further £625 through a prize draw on the night with prizes including a massage from Huddersfield based Alexandra House Spa and a climbing experience for six people from Brighouse based Rokt.

Jason Costello, of Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice, said: “Food is a fantastic way of bringing people together, especially in the reinvigorated surroundings of La Cachette. I can’t thank Glenn, Robert, John and the team enough for their truly remarkable fundraiser and wish them every success for the future.”

Glenn Futter, head chef at La Cachette, added: “It was great to welcome some new faces last night and I’m delighted that the new décor and menu was so well-received. Even better was the fact that we raised over £2,000 for such a good cause. We’re proud to have supported Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice.”
