Michelin chefs to cook for Nicholls Spinal Injury Foundation

The top five chefs in the county will be joining forces for a spectacular charity event next month.

The event will take place at Chapter one Restaurant in Locksbottom Kent on March 17th 2014


All the proceeds from the seven-course event will be benefitting the charity which is particularly close to McLeish, the chef patron at Chapter One.

Daniel Nicholls, who the foundation is named after, was a weekend runner at Chapter One, in Orpington, before he was paralysed from the arms down after breaking his neck.

It happened in 2003 when he dived into a wave on Bondi beach in Australia and hit his head on an unseen sandbank beneath the water. His father David Nicholls also worked with McLeish earlier in his career.

“The charity is quite close to our hearts really,” said McLeish. “We all hear stories like this but I know the guy. It really brings it home. It was such a huge shock.”

Tickets for the event are £120pp, which  includes  wine paired with each course. To book contact Cheryl Almond via email cheryl@chaptersrestaurants.com, or by calling the restaurant on 01689 854 848.
