A popular Walsall restaurant will be holding a special ‘scrumptious salads’ event to raise money for a borough bike club which provides much-needed after school and holiday activities, as well as, bicycle safety courses in the area.
Arbor Lights Restaurant will be rustling up a wide range of refreshing salads to raise funds for Bloxwich Bike Club who want to buy new bikes and equipment.
Bloxwich Bike Club organizes bike safety and maintenance courses in schools and across the borough and is run by Walsall-based Futures Alternative Education Services Ltd.
Now members of the project are hoping to raise £2,000 for desperately needed cycling equipment. To help this bid, Arbor Lights, situated in Lichfield Street, will be holding a scrumptious salad day all day and evening from 12noon on Tuesday, September 21.
Copies of the book Salads by Lyn Rutherford will also be on sale at the event for just £2. The books were kindly donated by Simon Allan-Smith of Direct Mail Publicity Ltd in Witton and proceeds from their sale will go to the bike club.
Harj Singh, manager of Arbor Lights, said: “We will be rustling up a tempting menu with new ideas to excite the taste buds.
There will be a choice of our normal menu and the one-off salad menu which will be focused around healthy eating from start to finish. People may want a salad starter and a regular main course.
All the funds raised from the sale of the salad dishes on the night will go to Bloxwich Bike Club which promotes public safety through its courses.
The sumptuous salad night promises to be a great occasion to enjoy some lovely nutritious food in great company.”
Bevil Williams, director of Leamore-based Futures Alternative Education Services Ltd, said: “I would like to thank Arbor Lights for organizing this event which should be a very enjoyable and fun occasion. All funds will go towards providing some new mountain bike equipment for our after-school bike club.”
“We have been around for around eight years but now the majority of our bikes are beginning to show their age and some are beyond repair. The new equipment would a great boost to the club and the youngsters that use it,” he added.
