The popular Indian street food restaurant, Mowgli, located on Ecclesall Road in Sheffield, has raised over an amazing £35,000 through their optional ‘add £1 to the bill’ scheme for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.

Mowgli and their generous diners have supported the much-loved charity since their partnership began in 2019. They raise £1,000 on average each month by giving their customers the option to leave a donation to the charity on their bill.

The restaurant also has a team of 15 staff taking part in the Edale Skyline Challenge on 4 April, which involves walking 21 miles in support of Bluebell Wood.

Zara Tattersall, Communications Manager at Mowgli said: "Charitable giving sits at the heart of Mowgli. We want to enrich the lives of the cities that we go to and in doing so, each of our 16 restaurants joins forces with a local charity.

"Our Ecclesall Road restaurant chose to partner with Bluebell Wood so we could support their outstanding commitment to young people, whose lives are too short, and their loved ones.

"It was important that we stood with the staff and families of Bluebell Wood, to ensure their incredible services continued".

Pip Colley, Regional Fundraiser at Bluebell Wood, said: “We’re incredibly proud of what Mowgli have achieved for our charity and we’re very much looking forward to continuing to work closely with the team.

“As a charity we need to raise over £5m each year to be there for local children and families who often have nowhere else to turn, so the support of community-spirited partners like Mowgli is incredibly important to us.”
