“Game of Thrones” star Kit Harington is joining efforts for a local UK charity, Longlands, to raise new funds for a building project. As reported by Worcester News, Harington grew up near the Longlands farm and recently visited the farm with fianceé Rose Leslie.

Now he’s offered up the chance for anyone to donate £5,000 (about $6,674) and get to experience a private dinner with him at a restaurant in Worcester. Also, for £10,000 (about $13,349) you can invited eight friends to join the private meal with the “Game of Thrones” star.

There’s only one “Dinner Package” available, which means the first person to get their credit card info into the crowdfunding page will nab the exclusive meal with Harington. You can see all the options (and make your purchase, if you so choose) here.

As you can see in the above video, Harington is committed to helping Longlands, which is an educational charity based out of a working livestock farm.

“Our students have struggled in mainstream school: some have been excluded, many have faced challenges with mental health issues or difficult backgrounds,” the crowdfunding page explains. “At Longlands, they work alongside our staff and volunteers developing skills with animals and farm work that lead to real qualifications, allowing them to go on to further education and/or employment.”

The fundraising is going towards a new building project for a roundhouse on the farm property.

For the lucky fan who wins the private meal, timing will depend on Harington’s schedule. Based on reports and the photos of cast parties, Harington has likely finished filming his final scenes for “Game of Thrones.” The estimated delivery of the “date” reward is marked as December 2019— more than a year and a half away.

Harington isn’t the only “Game of Thrones” star to graciously offer up their personal time for a good cause.

Earlier this year, Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) donated the chance for one auction winner to watch “Game of Thrones” with her. Brad Pitt nearly won the prize for $120,000, but he was outbid at the last moment.
