IT was a spicy night for families at Ronald McDonald House Liverpool as food company Pataks dropped in to cook up an Asian feast for the families staying there. Three chefs from Pataks were joined by a team of ten staff members from across the company, who served up a dinner of bhajis, spring rolls, butter chicken curry, beef in black bean sauce and Chinese vegetables.
A spokesperson for Pataks said: “As a local business, based in Leigh, Pataks has supported Ronald Macdonald House and seen first-hand the amazing work they do for the families of children receiving treatment at Alder Hey hospital. On the back of our fundraising work we were delighted to be asked to host one of their Tuesday night cook-ups and arranged for our wonderful team of development chefs to create a memorable curry feast for all the families currently staying in the house. We are delighted to be supporting a charity that does such important and caring work in our local community.”
Around seventy families enjoyed the tasty meal, and were also given samples of Pataks products to try in their own kitchens at the house. Fundraising manager Kate Davis said, “It was an amazing gesture from Pataks staff to offer their time to our families. It was a great night, and all of our families told us how much they enjoyed the food. One group had never tried curry, and gave a thumbs up to the food they sampled. We are delighted to have the corporate support from Pataks, it’s brilliant to see the difference their support makes to our families.”
