On the weekend of 19–22 June families up and down the UK will be making a difference to blood cancer patients when they visit Frankie & Benny’s restaurants

From 19–22 June, Frankie & Benny's restaurants all over the country will host a fundraising weekend to round off our amazing six-month partnership with The Restaurant Group (TRG). This year we've been so impressed to see 3,000 of their employees host a range of fundraising activities, including raffles, pizza competitions, a Great British pie campaign and even an upcoming 'I'm a manager, get me out of here!' event which will see Frankie & Benny's managers shipwrecked on Inchconnachan Island on Loch Lomond. Last month, TRG updated their £150,000 target to a whopping £250,000 and already look set to sail past this hefty sum.

Over the upcoming weekend, the whole family can enjoy a range of fundraising activities, including a colouring in competition where every entry receives a voucher for a free kid's meal in the restaurant!

Danny Breithaupt, Managing Director of The Restaurant Group, will be joining over 200 other cyclists on our epic London | Paris: Be Unstoppable cycling challenge which sets off on 19 June. TRG employee Matthew commented that "much like the cyclists we’ll be pushing hard to get to the finish line with a great total in the bank." With the fastest moving fundraising target Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research has ever seen, we don't doubt them for a second.
