Portadown restaurant serves up perfect recipe in support of Children’s Charity

22nd April, 2013

Portadown’s Salt Restaurant recently raised the steaks in support of a Children’s Charity by cooking up a treat of award-winning steaks for a table of four at its Armagh Road premises.

Brian and Jill Hunter from Markethill and their friends Charlie and Michelle Weir were served the European Angus Steak Tasting Competition winning steaks after Brian had
bid £200 for the privilege during the recent Awards ceremony held at Tandragee Golf Club. The award-winning steaks came from Millar Meats in Irvinestown, winners of the Surpeme Champion title in the Province-wide tasting event.

The £200 bid by Brian was part of a £1,462 total that was raised for the ‘Make a Wish Foundation’ on the night. The Make A Wish Foundation, which is the chosen charity of the European Angus Cattle Society, organisers of the Annual Steak Tasting Competition, grants magical wishes to children and young people aged between 3 and 17 who have life threatening illnesses.

All money raised locally goes towards helping to grant wishes for children based in Northern Ireland.

“We are delighted that Salt Restaurant chose to support our charity appeal this year and we are also very grateful to Brian Hunter for putting in that superb bid of £200 on the night,” said European Angus Cattle Society Secretary, Harry McGaffin.
