A CHEF from Coventry is raffling a private dining experience to raise funds for NHS charities.
Jade Douglas, a sous chef from Allesley, hopes her culinary skills could raise £5,000 for the NHS.
The winner of her raffle will have Jade cook a three-course meal for two once lockdown ends.
Jade works for caterer Wilson Vale but is currently off work under government furlough. She said: “The NHS is working extremely hard and I’ve been racking my brains trying to think of how I could help them.
“I came up with running an NHS fundraiser raffle. Having spoken with several nurses, they suggested that the funds raised could be used to purchase iPads to help patients in hospital to communicate with their loved ones.
“I am usually working within the hospitality industry as a chef so I am delighted to be able to use my craft skills to raise money to support the NHS during the Covid-19 pandemic.”
There will be 500 numbers available and each ticket is £10. The winner will receive a 3- course dinner of their choice for two people, cooked and served by Jade.
The winner will also receive two pieces of NHS-themed artwork created by Lorraine Douglas, Jade’s mother.
The raffle closes on April 30. Tickets and donations are via her Just Giving page under Jade Douglas: https://bit.ly/2KgCrR1
She has also set up an Instagram page @feedyourcravingswithjade and is asking anyone who donates to the fund to private message her on the page to receive their prize draw number.
