Mowgli Street Food, the Indian street food restaurant on Stoney Street in Nottingham, is celebrating raising over £75,000 in five years for Nottingham Hospitals Charity.
Fundraising is part of the Mowgli ethos, with every restaurant partnering with a local charity, to give back to the local community. The money raised at the Nottingham restaurant came from discretionary £1 donations added to every bill, and a series of fundraising challenges taken on by the Mowgli team.
Mowgli Founder and CEO, Nisha Katona, said: “We are blessed to have team members who want to go to work and wonder how they can make their city better, just as we are blessed to have the dedicated workers at Nottingham hospitals, and the kindness of our guests who help the monthly donations come rolling through. Thank goodness for people like them."
Barbara Cathcart, Chief Executive of Nottingham Hospitals Charity, said: “We are absolutely blown away by the incredible team at Mowgli reaching their £75,000 fundraising milestone. We’d like to thank the Mowgli team for all the fantastic fundraising activities they’ve taken on in aid of Nottingham’s hospitals, and also thank their customers who have given discretionary £1 donations as part of their bill. It just shows how small amounts can soon add up.
“The money raised by Mowgli so far has gone towards our Big Appeal for Nottingham Children’s Hospital, to help provide specialist equipment and improved facilities for our youngest patients and their families, as well as our Hayward House Appeal, to enhance palliative care facilities and services here in Nottingham. Thank you so much to everyone involved in this stellar fundraising effort.”
