Nando’s in Northampton was packed to the brim recently when they handed over control of the restaurant to Northampton Saints rugby players all in aid of the Nando’s Charity Chicken event, raising funds for local Northamptonshire charity, Cynthia Spencer Hospice, who support people with life limiting illness.
The squad, many of whom are rugby international players, took on various duties taking orders, cooking food and waiting on the tables and this immensely popular annual event raises thousands of pounds for charity each year.
Nimlok was delighted to donate some fantastic acrylic prints which were autographed by the players and sold off in a silent auction. A grand total of over L850 was raised from the prints alone (images had kindly been licenced by Red Hat Photos) which helped to swell the fundraising efforts from the auction which included many desirable items such as boots donated by England internationals Ben Foden, Lee Dickson and Stephen Myler. A pair of worn and dirty shorts worn by Tom Wood in an England international match and signed by the team were also up for grabs!
