Following a successful trial late last year, Fuller’s is rolling out a new charity children’s menu to a number of its pubs. The menu, featuring healthy option main courses, puddings and drinks, will be live in around half of Fuller’s managed pubs in time for next week’s half-term break.
Priced from £5.95 for two courses and a drink, 30p from each meal will be donated to Shooting Star Chase, a children’s hospice charity based in London, Surrey and West Sussex.
Each meal will also be served with an interactive and informative place mat, designed to keep children occupied with colouring-in games, word searches and conundrums. Parents will also be able to find out more about the ingredients in their child’s food, and details of the charity benefiting from the donation.
Paul Dickinson, Fuller’s head of food, said: “We have listened closely to what our customers have been saying and a couple of the most important things for parents right now are good quality ingredients and excellent value for money.
“We have taken great care to source the best possible ingredients for our children’s menu and have tried extremely hard to ensure they are low in salt too. I’m delighted with the results and hope that Shooting Star Chase will be just as delighted with the donation.”
Jeremy Payne, director of fundraising and marketing at Shooting Star CHASE, said: “Shooting Star CHASE is delighted to have been chosen to benefit from Fuller’s new children’s menu. Most of us cannot really imagine what the families that use our service are going through but what is absolutely clear is that we couldn’t continue to provide that service without this kind of generous support from organisations and ordinary people.”
