Magical wishes will be granted to children and young people fighting life-threatening conditions thanks to a Northampton restaurant.

Nene Valley Harvester has helped raise over £46,000 for Make–A-Wish UK.

Fundraising saw all team members getting involved by hosting bake sales and engaging with the community in Morley to help the cause.

Grant Pullen, general manager at Nene Valley Harvester, said: “We’re thrilled to have contributed to the donation from Harvester and think it’s fantastic that the brand as a whole managed to raise so much.

“All the team really enjoyed taking part in the fundraising and it was a great way to engage with the local community and give back to those who need it most.”

Staff are keen to get involved in more fundraisers for the charity, helping to raise much-needed funds and awareness.

Grant added: “We will definitely be taking part in future initiatives like this.”

Since being established in the UK in 1986, Make-A-Wish has granted more than 9,000 wishes. Wishes can range from meeting an idol, to enjoying a family holiday or having a dream bedroom makeover.

Harvester has been a valued supporter for several years. Staff have taken part in a range of fundraising activities, involving their customers throughout their restaurants.

Amanda Williams, Director of Fundraising at Make-A-Wish said the donations make a real difference to children’s lives and create precious memories for their whole family.

She added: “The donation from Harvester was tremendous and I want to thank everyone who took part for helping to raise such a huge amount.

“Here at Make-A-Wish we’re so passionate about what we do and it is so rewarding granting wishes to deserving children and young people.

“The donation from Harvester will be used to help us continue granting wishes to those who need a little magic.”
