Rick Stein Barnes raises £495 for local charity
18th May 2017
We’re proud to share that our trail openings at Rick Stein, Barnes raised £495 for local community charity, FiSH. Our new restaurant that opened in March, invited diners to donate to the charity rather than pay for their meals during its trial openings in the week leading up to the official launch on Friday 17th March.
FiSH was established in 1962, and at the time they were one of the first neighbourhood care organisations in the country. Their mission is to combat loneliness and social isolation in older and vulnerable people living in Mortlake, Barnes and East Sheen, enabling them to live independent and dignified lives. They connect the community through a volunteer network offering friendship, support and practical help. Activities of the charity include: helpline (transport for medical appointments, shopping for groceries, gardening and small maintenance jobs, relieving family carers temporarily), newsletter, combating loneliness, befriending, providing social activities and supporting impaired mobility people. See some lovely photos of the work they do below.
Thanks to everyone who came along to our trail openings and donated so generously to this important local charity.
If you haven’t had a chance to dine with us in Barnes yet, we’d love to welcome you soon. We’re sure you’ll be inspired by our sample menu here.
