Marlborough raises £2250 for local charity
28th Nov 2016
We are very excited to reveal that we’ve raised £2250 for Julia’s House, the Dorset & Wiltshire children’s hospice charity, at our pre-opening trails at Marlborough.
Our new restaurant that opened in October, invited diners to donate to the award-winning charity rather than pay for their meals during its trial openings in the week leading up to the official launch on Saturday 8th October.
Julia’s House provides practical and emotional support for families caring for a child with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition, offering frequent and regular respite in their own homes, in the community or at its Dorset hospice. The charity is currently building a dedicated children’s hospice for Wiltshire, due to open next spring.
Liz Froud, Julia’s House Wiltshire Community Fundraiser said:
“We are delighted with the amount of money that has been raised during the trial week of the new Rick Stein restaurant in Marlborough. It is wonderful they chose to support a local charity, and the money raised will make such a difference to the families that we are supporting here in Wiltshire”.
Stephane Malbranche, General Manager at Rick Stein, Marlborough added:
“Thank you to everyone who donated generously to Julia’s House, during our trial openings. We’re really pleased to have raised £2250 for such a fantastic and well deserving local charity.”
We have enjoyed welcoming people from the local community since opening and will be serving Christmas lunches between the 1st to 24th December. See the menu here.
