Catering lecturer hosts Tour-de-France themed dinner to fight cancer

A catering lecturer with a cycling obsession is raising money to help young people fighting cancer regain their physical fitness with a Tour-de-France themed dinner.

Dave Saul (pictured right), a lecturer at Stratford-upon-Avon College, has teamed up with Cyclists Fighting Cancer, a local charity, to host the event, which will take place at the college’s Academy restaurant.

The six-course dinner – which catering students at the college will help prepare – will reflect the route of the famous cycling contest, with courses influenced by dishes from Germany, Belgium and France.

Money raised at the event will go to oncology units throughout the UK, and pay for rehabilitation equipment – including bikes and tricycles – to help rebuild the strength and confidence of young cancer sufferers.

“I can’t think of a more worthwhile cause than helping children recover from cancer,” said Mr Saul. “The dinner will boost CFC funds even further – as well as providing us with what is certain to be a thoroughly enjoyable evening.”

The event, which takes place on June 15 is open to all. Tickets can be purchased here
