Slug and Lettuce in Harrogate is calling on its customers to help it raise money for Help for Heroes, by getting on a bike!

The team at the bar on Montpellier Parade is attempting to bicycle 100 miles on a static exercise bike in the bar this Sunday 24th February and is hoping several of its customers will join in the challenge.

Slug and Lettuce’s manager, Katy Donnelly has pledged to serve up some tempting deals to keep the cyclists going strong. “We will be offering our ‘Kids for a Quid’ promotion all day, where children can eat for just £1 when dining with an adult. We will also be introducing new SAS cards, a 25% food and 10% drinks discount card for soldiers and servicemen and women and we hope that many take up the opportunity to pick up a card and also spare a few minutes adding to the miles on the bike.”

“We will be kicking off the challenge from midday and won’t stop until we reach our target”, she added.

A state-of-the-art exercise bike is kindly being donated for the day by Harrogate’s Gymophobics.

Each of the seventy-one Slug and Lettuce bars up and down the country will be hosting its own fundraising event or challenge for Help for Heroes over the course of the next few weeks. “Our bars are fantastic supporters of charity and for many of them, they have a special local cause close to their hearts”, said Nicola Stuart, Slug and Lettuce’s Brand Development Manager, “But every year, for one month, all the bars come together and choose a single charity to fundraise for. For the second year in a row our managers have chosen Help for Heroes. Last year we raised just over £21,000 and hope that this year we can beat that target.”
