Tennis fever gives Red Hot boost to Food Bank

A POPULAR city restaurant is set to serve up an ace of an idea to boost our MK Food Bank appeal and celebrate the opening of Wimbledon.

The Red Hot World Buffet is holding a tennis-themed evening to mark the opening of the famous tournament on June 25.

And £5 from every £15 ticket will go directly to the Food Bank to buy food for people struggling to exist.

The restaurant, based in the Theatre District, will serve Pimms and lemonade and strawberries and cream – on top of its usual choice of 120 dishes from all over the world.

There will also be live music and plenty of tennis talk.

Tickets can be booked by calling 01908 609606 and quoting MK Food Bank.

Meanwhile the charity, which is backed by the Citizen, is appealing for more donations of food to help feed hungry people this summer.

It is particularly short of long life juice, tinned tuna, tinned spaghetti, tinned rice pudding, biscuits and jam.

Other items always welcome are baked beans, long life milk, tinned vegetables, tinned fruit, tea bags, dried rice and pasta, tinned meat, breakfast cereal, pasta sauce, soup and sugar.

All food donations can be dropped off on any weekday morning except Thursdays at 9, Hollin Lane Stacey Bushes or between 9am to 4pm daily at the Milton Keynes Christian Centre in Oldbrook’s Strudwick Drive.

The Church of Christ the Cornerstone is another collection point for Food Bank donations, as is Asda at Bletchley.

> Could your company or organisation hold its own collection for MK Food Bank? Or could your premises be an official drop off point for donations?

To offer help call the charity on 01908 321108.
