We work with two charities that are very personal to me.
Hammersmith Community Gardens Association
Hammersmith Community Gardens Association is a local environmental charity set up in 1984. They manage four community gardens in Hammersmith and Fulham. HCGA has a range of projects which include conservation training schemes, volunteer gardening sessions, health and wellbeing projects, environmental playschemes and environmental education in local schools. They assist local groups in the design, plan and management of their green spaces. We promote environmental sustainability within the borough and manage our sites to maximise biodiversity and encourage wildlife.
One of their community gardens is Phoenix Farm in White City. This incredible urban farm produces fruit and vegetables that we are able to use on our menu in the restaurant.
Charlie Waller Trust
Since its creation in 1997, CWT has become one of the UK’s most respected mental health charities. The Waller family are very old friends of mine and I am a huge supporter of everything do to help people with mental health issues.
