Northampton s popular street food pop-up, Bite Street NN, will be using a strikingly colourful menu item to fund a new outdoor play area for the children's wards at Northampton General Hospital (NGH)

The 'Freakin Rainbow burger' is a colourful special from the award-winning Patty Freaks, who are regular vendors at Bite Street. It features a beef patty, burger sauce, crispy onion, ketchup, bacon and lettuce, all served in a stunning rainbow bagel.

Bite Street organiser, Crispin Slee said: “As soon as I saw it on the menu, I thought it was a brilliant opportunity to raise money for the local NHS"

The rainbow burgers will be sold when Bite Street NN re-opens this weekend and one pound from every burger sold will be donated to the appeal for the children's play area.

Mr Slee continued: "During the pandemic, all the money has rightly been thrown at the frontline but that can mean some of the softer things on the edges can be overlooked.

"We wanted to support something local and think this is a fantastic cause. It’s horrible being stuck in hospital as a child.”

All funds raised will be donated to the Northamptonshire Health Charity's appeal for £130,000 to build the outdoor play area.

Bite Street NN returns for al fresco dining this weekend outside The County Ground in Abington Avenue, following the further easing of lockdown restrictions today (April 12) that allows for outdoor hospitality to re-open.

There will be a fully stocked bar and full table service with food and drink being ordered online via a QR code.

Bite Street will be open on Friday evening, Saturday from 1pm to 10pm and Sunday lunchtime.

Tickets are required for entry and cost £2. They must be pre-booked with one-hour timed arrival slots. Visit www.bitestreet.co.uk for more details.
