The Slug and Lettuce on Weybridge’s high street is hosting a charity auction on Thursday 28th February to raise money for the armed forces charity, Help for Heroes.
Starting at 7pm, a number of great prizes have been donated by local companies including goody bags from Waitrose and Boots, a blow dry by the team of Toni and Guy, a mini manicure and blow dry by Glitterati and a full body spray tan by Tantalise.
Kris Makoswki, general manager of Slug and Lettuce said: “We are delighted with the generosity shown by the companies who have donated lots for the auction and we’re sure that they’ll create a bidding frenzy amongst our customers.
“We’re looking to raise around £500 for Help for Heroes, which will go towards a bigger fund, as the entire seventy-one Slug and Lettuce bars up and down the country will be hosting their own fundraising event or challenge for Help for Heroes over the next few weeks.
“If customers aren’t able to bid on a lot, we’d still like to invite them down to the Slug and Lettuce, it looks set to be a great night and a donation of even a few pounds will be gratefully received.”
“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 mangers have chosen Help for Heroes. Last year we raised just over £21,000 and hope that this year we can beat that target.”
