Calling all burger fans! 🍔 This Thursday, there will be a mighty meat-eating challenge raising money for St Richard’s.

Plucky participants can test their burger-eating abilities at Sampson's at Conservatory Bar & Kitchen in Friar Street, Worcester, on Thursday 24th August – coinciding with #NationalBurgerDay.

Carl Sampson, whose burger van was named the best in Britain by The Times in 2015, is the man throwing down the gauntlet. He explained: “You must eat a five patty bacon bomb in 10 minutes or less on your own. If you do, the burger is free – but if you fail, it's £20.50. For every attempt – win or lose – we will donate £5 to St Richard’s. I will also personally match the total."

The celebrated burger chef is raising funds for St Richard’s – which provided his parents with bereavement counselling after his sister died in December 2016. He said: “My sister Katie went to bed at home and never woke up aged just 27. I really feel that without the support of the hospice I would have lost my parents too. The work done at St Richard’s is amazing and it can only be done with support from the community."

We would like to say a big thank you to Carl for his support – and good luck to those taking part in the challenge on Thursday! 🍔🍔🍔
