A CHESTER restaurant has pledged to donate £1 for every meal it sells until the end of the year in aid of a good cause.
Dino’s restaurant in Hotel Roma, Lower Bridge Street, made the pledge to a foundation created in memory of 16-year-old Charlotte Hartey, a Shropshire teenager who died in July due to being misdiagnosed over the telephone with swine flu, when she had tonsillitis.
The restaurant’s owner, Dino Palumbo, dedicated the pledge, saying: “The Hartey family have been our customers for nearly 20 years. Charlotte’s smiling face will be greatly missed.
“The foundation is a great cause that will benefit the people in our area. We feel it is our responsibility as a local company and as members of the community to support this worthy cause in Charlotte’s memory.”
Karl Hartey, Charlotte’s father, said: “We are delighted such a restaurant is willing to help us raise money in Charlotte’s memory.
“Not only will it help local causes but it will raise awareness into the importance of face-to-face medical consultations, encouraging parents to insist on having children properly examined when they are ill and in turn save lives.”
