Staff and customers at a Chorley restaurant have a developed a thirst for helping Rosemere Cancer Foundation.

Over the last six months, Italian restaurant Dantes at the Halfway House, in Clayton-le-Woods, has raised £300 for the charity by selling its in-house sparkling or still bottled water.

Proprietor Nick White pledged to donate 20p to the cause for every bottle sold, ensuring a healthy donation.

Nick said: “We share a lot of milestones with our clientele – birthdays, anniversaries and the like so we pride ourselves on being an important part of the community.

“As such, we feel it is important to support a charity, which also serves and supports that same community and we plan to continue our water aid scheme.”

Rosemere Cancer Foundation spends the donations it receives on vital equipment, research and training to help treat cancer.

The charity also funds those things that can make the cancer journey a little more comfortable such as free access to complementary therapies for all newly diagnosed patients.
