This month's winners of Shanly Group's charity prize draw are Sorbon Estates tenants Terry Greenhill and Ferdi Pacelli, the owners of restaurant chain Prime Steak & Grill, who nominated The Monday Club as the recipient of the £2,500 donation. The Abbots Langley-based charity, which is run by 10 volunteers, supports adults with learning difficulties by organising weekly social activities for its members. The charity has strong links with Breakspeare School, a specialist school for children with learning difficulties, whose ex-pupils often become members of The Monday Club.
Terry and Ferdi, who have supported the charity for a number of years, own 12 restaurants under the Prime Steak & Grill and Zaza brands across Hertfordshire and Middlesex and regularly engage in charitable activities locally, encouraging their employees to follow suit.
Tamra Booth, Operations Director at the Shanly Group, said: "We are delighted that Mr. Greenhill and Mr. Pacelli of Prime Steak & Grill are the winners of the prize draw. The Shanly Group is committed to supporting those most vulnerable within our communities and knowing that our tenants are passionate about their nominated charity is extremely moving."
Terry Greenhill, co-owner of Prime Steak & Grill, said:"We hope that our help and the £2,500 donation from the Shanly Group will enable The Monday Club to continue creating a welcoming environment for people with learning difficulties even after they've left school, ensuring they always have a place to go."
Deborah Holt, chairman of The Monday Club, said:"We're grateful for the support provided by Mr. Greenhill and Mr. Pacelli over the years. This donation will enable us to continue organising exciting trips and creating memorable experiences for our members - our goal is to ensure that they never feel isolated because of their disability."
