Staff from Nando’s in Romford helped serve up £1,000 for Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital following a charity football day.

The restaurant’s assistant manager Jamie Murphy and trainer Daniel Bass assembled eight teams from Nando’s branches across Havering and Essex for a tournament at Goals in Dagenham last month.

The Romford branch, based in The Brewery, brought home the prize after taking on Southend in the final.

“Goals gave us the pitch plus free medals and trophies,” said Jamie. “From that one-day tournament, plus what people have been collecting, we’ve got over £1,000.”

The organisers chose Great Ormond Street because a friend’s daughter is being treated there.
