Frankie & Benny's Restaurant dish up £275,000
A few months ago our friends at Frankie & Benny's Restaurant, offered a special deal where kids could eat for free if a donation was made to Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research. As everyone knows about their family friendly menus, it's not surprising that you turned out in your thousands throughout the UK to support this special deal- but what's surprising, in fact unbelievable, is that thanks to Frankie & Benny's, their employees, guests* and your support an incredible £275,000 has been raised !
Led from the front by Danny Breithaupt, the incoming CEO of the Restaurant Group, and his amazing team have been supporting Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research since January. As well as the kids eat for free idea, they've also created other special offers, supported events like our Dragon Boat Race in Chlemsford and Danny completed our London to Paris cycling event in June. The alignment of our two organisation's family values, the efforts of the employees and the generosity of customers (known as guests* at Frankie & Benny, which tells you just how much they are valued!) meant that what seemed like an ambitious target of £150,000 was completely smashed!
The Restaurant Group are especially interested in helping children and their support will help us to ensure that children don't just survive blood cancer but that they are also completely free; free from side effects; free from fear and free to be themselves.
This is the most that The Restaurant Group have ever raised in a charity partnership and it's a life changing donation for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research, we are so grateful for this wonderful support and for what it will help us to achieve for families eveywhere.
