Ilkley La Casita restaurant will support three charities this Christmas


LA Casita, a tapas restaurant in Ilkley, pledged to help three local charities in December.

The restaurant has asked its social media followers to choose a charity to support, the shortlist being between Yorkshire Air Ambulance, Martin House Children’s Hospice and Feed Leeds Homeless project.

Following a high number of equally divided votes for the three charities, the restaurant decided to support them all. “We couldn’t pick one after all the votes we got,” said co-founder Oliver Renton. “So, we thought, let’s support all three! ”

La Casita has chosen three dishes from their Christmas menu as charity dishes and all proceeds from these dishes will go to the charity they represent. This will take place over a three week period in December and each week the restaurant will support one of the charities.

The first week, La Casita supports the Martin House children’s hospice through its dish of chorizo ​​with hot cider with spices. Week two is supporting Yorkshire Air Ambulance through their new roasted parsnip and chestnut granola dish and week three is cod loin with beef cheeks to benefit the Feed Leeds Homeless project.

Vickie Bowden, head of fundraising at Yorkshire Air Ambulance, said: charity dish. It costs £ 12,000 a day to maintain and fly the two Yorkshire Air Ambulances. Local communities and businesses such as La Casita Tapas are the cornerstone of our association.
