So far, this summer has been hot, hot, hot, and what better excuse for a barbecue than to hold one for charity?
Here’s a range of recent fundraising bbqs, and some of the charities encouraging supporters to hold one for them over summer months.
Three charities with smoking hot ideas
Help for Heroes is encouraging people to hold a fundraising BBQ for Heroes in its support this summer, and has a range of burger ideas and other recipes on its site, including the Commando Burger, created by Veteran Alex Kroll, and the Infantry Burger, created by Veteran John Voss.
Prostate Cancer UK is encouraging men – and anyone else who fancies it – to get a grill on and hold their own MAN V BBQ event this summer.
Alzheimer’s Research UK is asking people to get their friends and family together and hold a Sizzlin’ summer BBQ for the charity.
