Lussmanns Fish & Grill Founder & Director Andrei Lussmann said:

“I am absolutely delighted to announce our new charity partner Muscle Help Foundation (MHF), founded by Michael McGrath. A local charity rooted in family values, MHF delivers transformational experiences in the UK called Muscle Dreams for children and young people (8-29yrs) with Muscular Dystrophy (MD) and allied neuromuscular conditions. MHF gives its beneficiaries and their families hope, inspiration and empowerment.

Throughout the year there will be plenty of opportunities to get involved with our fundraising activities for this worthwhile charity, including our annual ‘Dream Team Dinner’ and MHF’s innovative ‘Meatballs for Muscle Dreams’ campaign – watch this space!’

MHF’s Founder & CEO Michael McGrath said:

“I am thrilled that the Muscle Help Foundation (MHF) has been adopted by Lussmanns as their official 2019/20 Charity Partner. It’s no secret I’m a fan of Lussmanns! With their five restaurants ‘doing Hertfordshire proud’ (The Good Food Guide), the charity is very much looking forward to working closely with Andrei and his team on a number of fundraising events, not least their annual ‘Dream Team Dinner’ which we plan to support in any way we can!

Having a local partnership with a business featured in the Sunday Times Magazine’s Best 100 Restaurants 2018 gives the charity an exciting opportunity to not only attract new ‘Muscle Warrior’ supporters from across the county but also raise much-needed awareness and vital funds so we can move closer to our goal of delivering 657 Muscle Dreams for children and young people with Muscular Dystrophy – that’s one life-changing experience for every muscle in the human body!

MHF is in the process of developing an innovative fundraising campaign called ‘Meatballs for Muscle Dreams’ – now whilst I couldn’t possibly reveal the ingredients that constitute my wife’s amazing meatballs recipe, I’ve no doubt that Andrei’s take on this dish will galvanise customers into consumption (not least of all me!) from Hertford, St Albans and Harpenden to Hitchin and my old home town of Tring… as we say in the charity, that’s the #powerof657!”
