Grosvenor Casino delivers 25,000 meals to charity
The Russell Square location donates free meals to vulnerable people in London
One of the biggest and most popular casino brands in the United Kingdom, Grosvenor Casino, is in the news for positive reasons this week for the Russell Square location donating 25,000 free meals to help feed vulnerable people across London.
They are working with local charities and organisations such as The Salvation Army, Help the Aged, Only A Pavement Away and the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit Team at St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington. Grosvenor Casino has freshly prepared meals seven days a week to deliver to those who need them.
“This was only made possible by companies like Grosvenor supporting our campaign,” says Only A Pavement Away
“When we started our Hospitality Against Homelessness campaign the aim was to help get food and drink supplies into the rough sleepers who had been placed into hostels,” said Greg Mangham, the founder of charity Only A Pavement Away. “This was only made possible by companies like Grosvenor supporting our campaign.”
He added: “As a charity, we’re overwhelmed by the generosity and support we received from Jerry and his team. What started as a few meals grew into a lifeline for those suffering hardship. Every time Grosvenor Casinos were asked to help they just kept on giving. We are proud to have them as a partner and can never thank them enough.”
“We’re proud of all the kitchen team and the delivery staff’s efforts,” says Grosvenor Casino Russell Square
“It has been a difficult time for everyone in the community, but working with our charity partners to cook and deliver more than 25,000 free meals really is the jackpot for the team and a real testament to everyone’s commitment to the cause,” stated Jerry Lewis, the general manager at Grosvenor Casino Russell Square.
Furthermore, he stated: “We’re proud of all the kitchen team and the delivery staff’s efforts who continue to go above and beyond to support this initiative, which is being delivered by Grosvenor Casinos Russell Square’s Community Kitchen.”
The local charities all donated meals to keywords such as NHS nurses, police, ambulance teams and the fire brigade as a thank you for everything they do.
