Leading restaurant cooks up a massive
donation to The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity
GENEROUS diners at one of Liverpool's
top curry restaurants have donated ₤50,600 to The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity.
Mowgli Street Food, in Bold Street, introduced a discretionary ₤1 donation to
all bills in January 2016 to help transform cancer care.
Not only have thousands of customers agreed to the donation, some have gone even
further with their contribution when learning about the work of The
Clatterbridge Cancer Centre NHS Foundation Trust.
Mowgli owner Nisha Katona is passionate about the relationship between her Bold
Street eatery and the specialist treatment and Research Centre based in Wirral.
And she praised staff at the hugely popular restaurant for helping collect the
impressive amount for The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre.
TV chef Nisha, who regularly appears on ITV's Lorraine show and is the author of
several cookbooks, said:- "Mowgli absolutely thrives on strong community,
therefore we recognise that we should give our local community something more
than just good food.
Charity lies at the heart of our ethos and we are all honoured to support The
Clatterbridge Cancer Centre.
My Bold Street team have grown alongside the centre and it has really helped
them understand how they contribute and make a difference through their own hard
A group of staff recently visited the Hospital
in Wirral to learn more about patient care and the cutting edge research taking
place on new treatments.
Among them was Nick Blair, Business Development Coordinator. He said:-
"The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre has become a massive part of our Mowgli Bold
Street family. We believe strongly that charitable giving should be a central
pillar of business.
Our Bold Street team have regular site visits where they see for themselves the
invaluable work done by everybody at the Centre. They grow alongside their much
loved charitable sibling."
The Clatterbridge Cancer charity is currently working to raise ₤15 million
towards the building of a new specialist Hospital in Liverpool City Centre and
improvements to the Wirral site.
Christine Done, Capital Appeals Manager at The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity,
said:- "We could not be more proud of the team at Mowgli, Bold Street, for
all their efforts on our behalf. The staff have visited our Wirral site to
see for themselves what a difference their partnership makes to the 27,000
individual patients we see each year. Every 1 of them is an ambassador for
our charity and can speak from a position of knowledge having seen 1st hand what
we do. It's a simple and effective way of fundraising and all the money raised
will support the building of a brand new dedicated cancer Hospital in Liverpool;
the City's 1st."
