La Mama Latin Restaurant is hosting the event, which will see diners sample numerous dishes from the eatery’s new tapas menu, on Saturday, October 19.

The venue, on Abbeydale Road, is known for it’s Latin American and Chilean flavours.

Owner of the restaurant, Daniela Cooke said: “Diners can expect come and enjoy a banquet of food.

“There will be two long tables for people to sit at, with the idea being that people will sit together, socialise and share the food.

“There won’t be any ordering off a menu, but there will be plenty of choice with a chance to try things from our new menu and there will be meat, vegetarian, and vegan options.

“All of the proceeds raised from the evening will be going straight to the British Red Cross.”

Daniela chose to raise money for the charity because it is close to her heart.

She said: “It was one of the charities that helped my mother leave Chile during the Chilean coup. If it wasn’t for the Red Cross I would not have been here today,

“The main thing is that I want to celebrate ten years of being an independent business in Sheffield and give something back to a charity that has given my family so much.”

The evening will begin at 7pm. For tickets, which will cost £25 per person, please call the venue on 0114 327 9597.
