Local chef Mark Owens has raised £300 for the charity, Life Kitchen.
Life Kitchen is a charity that creates meals for cancer patients who struggle to taste food after undergoing chemotherapy.
Owens from Washington contacted well-known chefs from all over the UK to get signed cookbooks, jackets and aprons from the best in the business. Owens created an online auction for the memorabilia and raised £300 for Life Kitchen.
The money raised will go towards opening a kitchen in Washington to provide cooking classes to patients.
In the future, Owens is hoping to be involved in further fundraising in order to support a cause that is close to his heart.
