Authentic Italian restaurant Franco and Paolo’s, located at Locks Heath Shopping Village, is thrilled to announce that its special charity luncheon raised an incredible £1700 for Bowel Cancer UK.
On Monday 1st February, Franco and Paolo invited 40 local ladies to its charity lunch where they could enjoy a delicious three course set meal whilst taking part in a selection of fundraising activities including a raffle and magic from local magician Jon Harris.
The owners of the Italian restaurant decided to host this event after they were contacted by a customer who wanted to raise money for Bowel Cancer UK after she sadly lost a loved one to the disease.
More than 41,500 men and women are diagnosed with bowel cancer every year in the UK and it is the fourth most common cancer in the country. Although bowel cancer is the second most common cause of cancer death in the UK, if diagnosed early, it is very treatable.
Franco Adani, Owner of Franco and Paolo’s, commented:
“It was a delight to host the ladies charity luncheon and I’m thrilled to have raised £1700 for such a worthy cause. We regularly host events like this and encourage all local residents to get in touch with us if they’re looking to do the same.”
Ian Goodridge, Centre Manager of Locks Heath Shopping Village, added:
“I would like to say a huge congratulations to Franco and Paolo for all the hard work they put into helping the local community. They host spectacular events and I’m delighted to hear they raised a fantastic amount of money for the cancer charity.”
