The Flying Horse Hotel is hosting a burger eating contest in the name of charity
A burger eating contest to raise money for a kidney charity will be held at the Flying Horse Hotel in Rochdale on Wednesday 11 December.
The Burger Bash Eating Contest will be held in honour of pub landlord Ben Boothman’s eldest son, Oliver, who suffers from a rare condition called Alport’s Syndrome. Oliver was diagnosed with the condition in 2013, a genetic kidney disease which causes deafness and renal failure in those it affects.
The money collected from the Burger Bash will be donated to the Action for Alport’s research campaign.
It is hoped that £2,500 will be raised on the night, with the winner being required to eat ten small burgers faster than the rest of the contestants. 32 people have signed up to take part and no further entries are being taken.
Additionally, Oliver's aunt, Ruth Radanovic, will be running the 2020 London marathon to raise money for Action for Alport’s.
