Watch as we find out how Liverpool is getting behind Action Against Hunger
Liverpool restaurants, including Maray, The Art School, Fazenda, Lunya, Hope Street Hotel, Hanover Street Social and Viva Brazil, have helped Action Against Hunger to raise an astonishing £1.1 million in the international NGO’s biggest campaign to date.
Action Against Hunger joined forces with top restaurants in Liverpool and other UK cities, in October last year, calling on diners to raise funds to help children to survive life-threatening malnutrition.
Independent Liverpool restaurant group, Red and Blue (who’s portfolio includes Salt House, Hanover Social Club and Bacaro), which was founded by local business partners, Paddy and Jonathan, are also avid fundraisers.
Over the years they have supported various local charities, including Alder Hey Hospital, White Chapel homeless shelter and Action Against Hunger.
Since 2010, Salt House has raised over £100k for Alder Hey Hospital and Bacaro has raised over £30K for White chapel homeless shelter in Liverpool since 2015.
At the moment Paddy and Hanover Street Social manager, Steph, are trekking the Langtang mountains in Nepal to raise money for Action Against Hunger. The pair trekked through Ethiopia last year, managing to raise close to £100k for the charity.
