Oakman Inns has raised £20,744 for the Italian Red Cross to support the relief efforts in earthquake-torn Amatrice.

The money was raised directly from the net sales of the pizza and pasta dishes across the Oakman estate.

Using the social media hashtag, #EatForItaly, customers were encouraged to show their support over three days by ordering a pizza or pasta dish.

Oakman Inns chief executive Peter Borg-Neal said: “It was very touching to see the support that so many of our customers gave the campaign and they all deserve a huge round of applause for their support as the final result has exceeded our expectations.”
