Harvester raises funds for Make-a-Wish
A SALISBURY Harvester restaurant has helped raise more than £100,000 to help young people with life-threatening conditions.
The Old Castle Harvester was one of many of the restaurant chain’s branches to join in efforts to raise £105,000 for Make-A-Wish Foundation UK, the Harvester’s official charity, which it has supported for the past seven years.
The money was mainly raised through a special Make-A-Wish Sundae, which featured on the menu during 2012 with a donation from every sundae sold going to the charity. Staff members also carried out their own fundraising activities to add to the total.
Karen Baskett, retail director for Harvester, said: “Make-A-Wish Foundation UK makes a positive difference to children and young people across the country. “We are delighted to help support the once in a lifetime experiences that these children deserve. We owe a big thanks to all our customers who purchased a Harvester sundae and helped contribute to the fundraising total.”
The money will enable the charity to grant more than 26 wishes, and over the last seven years Harvester has raised more than £300,000 for the charity.
Amanda Williams, the charity’s director of fundraising, said: “We are thrilled to continue our strong relationship with Harvester and want to say a big thank you. The donations we receive make a real difference to the children’s lives and create precious memories for their whole family.”
