A NORTH Devon business chief is becoming a chef for the day to fulfil an auction promise made to raise money for young victims of child trafficking in Africa.Paul Momber can be usually found at the helm of Fremington-based Absolute Driver Solutions. But after being "bought" at a charity slave auction by chef Greg Tyler of the Westleigh Inn, he will now be pulling on an apron and realising a life-long ambition to work in a professional kitchen."I enjoy cooking and have always wanted to work in a kitchen so being Greg's slave for the day will be a good experience for me," Paul told the Gazette."We haven't arranged an exact date yet, but I've asked Greg to get me in during a busy shift so that I can really experience the buzz of a working kitchen."I'm really looking forward to it."Paul's shift at the Westleigh pub will help swell the fund-raising efforts of the Bideford Business League, who put on the auction at the Barnstaple Hotel before Christmas.The event helped raise in excess of £4,000 for the "Papa's Garden" charity set up by Bude couple Lyn and Bob French, who sold their own house to build a home for trafficked children forced to work under desperate conditions in the fishing industry on Lake Volta, in Ghana.Business League member Paul said the couple were overwhelmed by the amount the auction raised."Lyn and Bob had hoped that the Business League could raise enough money for a tumble drier and washing machine and were really pleased with what we actually managed to achieve."We hope it will be the first of what will become an annual fund-raising event organised by the League."For more information about the charity visit www.papasgarden.orgã
