When a Mary Brown’s family member is in crisis, our Franchisees demonstrate great generosity!

Rachel Forsey, a young university student, is a former part-time staff member at our franchise location in Paradise, NL. Recently, Rachel was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia. Her illness has taken her and her family to Toronto for an extended period of time. The cost to relocate has been a considerable financial burden.

Tanya Bishop, our Operator at our Paradise location, has proven time and time again that she has a huge heart and is always willing to help her employees, their families and her community. No surprise then that when she heard about Rachel’s situation, she stepped up to help. Tanya remarked that Rachel was a great team member and loved by all of her co-workers.

On Sept. 27, Tanya held a fundraiser for Rachel at her restaurant location in Paradise. All proceeds from Big Marys sold on that day were donated to Rachel and her family.

What’s more, the day after the event, Tanya and her manager Janice, flew to Toronto to present Rachel with a cheque for over $8,100! 

A big hug and thank you to Tanya from everybody at Mary Brown’s for showing such incredible kindness.

We all wish Rachel a speedy recovery.
