Restaurateur Michael Deane is calling on restaurants across Northern Ireland to support children’s cancer charity, Cancer Fund for Children this Christmas by taking part in the charity’s Dine and Donate campaign.
This is the fifth consecutive year that Deanes Restaurants will take part in the festive fundraiser which encourages diners to add a £1 donation to their bill to help raise vital funds to support children and young people impacted by cancer and their families.
To date Deanes Restaurants have raised over £14,750 by taking part in the Dine and Donate initiative and they are calling on even more restaurants to join the them in supporting Cancer Fund for Children this Christmas.
Speaking about the success of the charity’s partnership with Deanes Restaurant Cancer Fund for Children’s Corporate Fundraiser Sarah Clements said,
“We are thrilled that Deanes Restaurants are once again partnering with Cancer Fund for Children this Christmas. It is a real honour to be working with Michael and Kate along with the entire staff across the restaurant group in helping to bring some festive cheer to children living with cancer.
We have had great feedback from the campaign, with over 95% of diners choosing to donate and help make a difference.”
Speaking about his restaurants support of Cancer Fund for Children Michael Deane added, “We have chosen to help this very deserving charity again this year because our faithful customers have consistently and willingly supported our initiative. We are delighted to be in a position to bring some festive cheer to these sick children and their families at this special time of the year.”
This December another 12 local families will be told the devastating news that their child has been diagnosed with cancer. Cancer Fund for Children understands that beyond the essential medical care there is a family life that needs to be rebuilt. The charity helps connect, empower and strengthen young people living with cancer by providing them with practical and emotional support, as well as therapeutic short breaks for the whole family.
Every restaurant that signs up to take part in the Dine and Donate will receive a free fundraising pack with promotional material explaining the campaign to customers, as well as making it clear that there is an option to opt out.
