Frankie & Benny’s to benefit local children’s hospice care

Rennie Grove Hospice Care is set to benefit from a new fundraising partnership withballoon tree  Frankie & Benny’s.

Family-friendly restaurant chain, Frankie & Benny’s, has chosen Together for Short Lives, the leading UK charity that supports seriously ill children and their families, to be their charity partner for the next year.

Each Frankie & Benny’s restaurant will be directly fundraising for the charity in their local area that provides hospice care for children. 

Rennie Grove has been twinned with Frankie & Benny’s in Aylesbury and Hemel Hempstead. Money raised by staff will help the charity to provide families facing some of the hardest challenges with the vital care and support they need. 

Gillian Barnett, Director of Fundraising & Marketing said: “We’re delighted to be benefiting from the partnership between Together for Short Lives and Frankie & Benny’s.  We need to raise £7.2million each year to help all the families who need our care.  Support like this can give our fundraising a crucial boost.”

Spencer Ayres, Managing Director at Frankie and Benny’s said: “Frankie and Benny’s has a strong tradition of supporting charities over the years and we are delighted to be joining forces with Together for Short Lives. To begin a partnership with a charity that touches so many lives is one that I’m extremely proud of and is a cause the whole team at Frankie’s will be behind. We can’t wait to see the efforts of our team and the generosity of our guests improving lives during the most challenging of times.”
