Bethany Rose’s Candle 4 Katy fundraising campaign in aid of Breast Cancer Care is to receive a helping hand thanks to Ribble Tandoori takeaway on Waddington Road in Clitheroe.
Owner Mohammed Islam was so moved by Bethany’s story and her determination to raise £5,000 in memory of her mother Katy Rose that he has pledged to give all the profits from takeaway sales today (Monday, March 28th) to the Candle 4 Katy fund.
Mohammed said: “When I read Bethany’s story in the Clitheroe Advertiser I was moved by her courage and determination and really wanted to support her campaign.
“Her dad Andy came in to collect an order that very night so I immediately offered our help and agreed that we would give our profits from a night’s trading to the cause. It’s the least we can do.”
So far Bethany has raised more than £3,000, and with a sponsored 5km walk planned for Mother’s Day with her friends and family has her £5,000 target firmly in sight.
Bethany said: “My dad loves curry and I’m really pleased that Ribble Tandoori is helping us, it’s very kind. We’ve now sold over 100 Candle 4 Katy candles and have had lots of donations on our Just Giving page. All the money raised will be helping other people with breast cancer so Mummy would be very proud.”
Ribble Tandoori takeaway will be donating profits on all orders taken today. They can be contacted on 01200 443368.
