Nanna Mexico is warmly welcoming customers to come along on the day, between 11.30am and 2pm, and to donate what they feel their meal is worth to the local charity Magpas Lifesavers.
Last year, Luis Navarro (pictured), owner and founder of the restaurant, experienced first-hand the incredible lifesaving services of Magpas – The Emergency Medical Charity – when his son was in a critical condition after suffering a seizure.
Zac suffers from a rare form of epilepsy which causes acute breathing difficulties, and the crucial care and expert advice he received that day from Magpas Helimedix Dr Ali Tompkins saved Zac’s life.
Celebrating the grand opening of Nanna Mexico and linking it to Magpas Lifesavers is the perfect opportunity to help promote the incredible work they do, and at the same time raise the ever needed funds to keep the helicopter flying.
Says Luis: “My son is now five years old thanks to Magpas Lifesavers. We are celebrating our new restaurant opening by giving a free lunch to our customers to raise money for Magpas. It costs an average of £600 each time the helicopter flies to a medical emergency. Enjoy your lunch and please give what you can. I will think of your generosity every time I see my boy smile.”
Nanna Mexico is known amongst Cambridge locals for its fresh, authentic Mexican cuisine and ‘honest food, done well’ mantra. Its Big Ass Burritos have something of a cult following. The funky new restaurant is right in the heart of Cambridge, at 29 Petty Cury.
