A Balsall Common pub donates £500 to The Lily Mae Foundation following successful lasagne sales

THE WHITE Horse pub and restaurant in Balsall Common has presented The Lily Mae Foundation with £500 – the amount raised through donations from the sales of its hugely popular lasagne which returned to the menu in March.

The ‘original’ White Horse Lasagne was put back on the a la carte menu six months ago following numerous requests for the dish and the pub on the Kenilworth Road decided to support a great cause at the same time by donating 50p from every order to the charity which supports parents and families that have been affected by the loss of a baby due to Stillbirth or Neonatal Death.

Chris Kelly, owner of The White Horse said: “We’ve sold 920 lasagnes since starting our fundraising so rounded the £460 up to £500. We’re hoping to at least match this over the rest of our year long commitment – and we are, of course, keeping the ‘bestselling’ dish on our new Autumn/Winter menu.

Amy Jackson, Co-Founder of the Balsall Common-based Lily Mae Foundation added: “We are absolutely delighted with the amount. “It’s totally amazing.




“This figure will enable us to create ten memory boxes which we provide to help families cope with the loss of a baby.

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.


It also supports research to reduce the current high levels of baby loss and works to help change public perception of Stillbirth and Neonatal Death.
