A restaurant raised more than $5,000 for a children’s charity by selling food items at massively reduced rates.

KFC Bermuda said that proceeds from its seventh annual Halloween treat voucher campaign would be donated to the Coalition for the Protection of Children.

The restaurant sold booklets of vouchers with a value of up to $12.25 for only $2. Children under the age of 13 could cash in the vouchers in exchange for food items from the restaurant’s menu.

Kelly Hunt, Executive Director at Coalition for the Protection of Children said: “We are so appreciative to KFC and its customers for this amazing contribution. On behalf of the families we serve, we would like to thank each of you for helping us ensure that children can grow up in a safe and healthy environment with proper access to nutrition.

“KFC management is to be commended for their ongoing willingness to support our community.”

Ginene Haslam, the general manager of KFC, said: “We would like to thank our customers for supporting this campaign. We are very happy to have raised $5,002, and I’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate Kelly Tweed who was our top fundraiser.

“We know how challenging fundraising can be for local charities, so being able to help their local programmes and initiatives with this contribution is rewarding”.
