THE WHITE Horse pub and restaurant in Balsall Common has launched a new menu for spring, bringing back its hugely popular lasagne to raise funds for The Lily Mae Foundation.
Every sale of the dish will see 50p donated to the charity set up by Balsall Common residents Ryan and Amy Jackson following the stillbirth of their daughter Lily Mae.
Chris Kelly, owner of The White Horse said: “Many customers were disappointed when we took the lasagne off the menu so I’m sure the dish will be a ‘bestseller’ now it’s back.
“We already have links with The Lily Mae Foundation through the Balsall Common Festival Fun Run and hosting the Charity’s support meetings for bereaved parents and quiz nights.
“We’re looking forward to continuing our association and hope to raise a substantial sum, anticipated to be in the region of £1,000 during our year long commitment.”
Amy Jackson, Co-Founder of the Balsall Common based Lily Mae Foundation which supports parents and families that have been affected by the loss of a baby due to Stillbirth or Neonatal Death said: “We are delighted to be receiving this further support from The White Horse and look forward to sampling the lasagne soon too.”
The Lily Mae Foundation was set up in 2010 to help and support parents and families that have been affected by the death of a baby. The Lily Mae Foundation also supports research to reduce the current high levels of baby loss and works to help change public perception of Stillbirth and Neonatal Death.
The White Horse will make a cheque presentation to The Lily Mae Foundation at the end of the year.
