Grosvenor Casino Step Up to the Plate to Help Those in Need
It has been revealed that the Grosvenor Casino in London’s Russell Square have donated 25,000 meals to families in need across London since April 2020.
The casino’s kitchen staff have cooked meals every day of the week for people in need and are working alongside local charities, including The Salvation Army, Help the Aged, and Only a Pavement Away.
The founder of Only a Pavement Away, Greg Mangham, is overwhelmed by the generosity of Grosvenor Casino and said, “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. This was only made possible by companies like Grosvenor supporting our campaign. 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.”
Grosvenor casinos across the UK have donated a total of 100,000 free meals along with their charity partners, and Jerry Lewis, who is the manager of Grosvenor Casino Russell Square, said, “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. 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.”
