Restaurant staff celebrated a revamp by welcoming charity walkers and a very deserving family.

Ask Italian in St John’s Street, Stamford, reopened with a fresh new look last month. And to mark the occasion staff welcomed 27 fundraisers at the end of a 20-mile walk from their sister restaurant in Peterborough.

The walkers were raising money for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity as part of a national campaign. And special guests on the day were Peterborough resident Cayla Viner, a patient at the hospital, and her family.

A cheque for £847, raised by diners buying raffle tickets in August, was presented to Cayla, 12, to pass on to the charity. Cayla’s mother Rene said: “We’re delighted with the sum raised by Ask Italian Stamford, which will really help not only Cayla but all the other patients from Great Ormond Street Hospital.”
