Liverpool diners can support local charities as they eat out during January following the launch of a ‘Keep It Local’ campaign.
City restaurants Lucha Libre and Miyagi will donate 10% of the bill to the Whitechapel Centre and Save Katie when customers can show they have spent £5 or more in another local independent business, retailer or charity.
The eateries will also give the customers a 40% discount off the cost of the meal as part of the campaign as a reward for exploring Liverpool’s homegrown businesses.
Those who hand a receipt from another local independent at the start of their meal at Lucha Libre will prompt a donation to be made to homeless charity the Whitechapel Centre to help with the costs of running the No Second Night Out initiative.
No Second Night Out aims to stop people from spending more than one night sleeping rough on Liverpool’s streets.
Meanwhile local shoppers handing receipts in at Miyagi will have a proportion of their bill donated to Save Katie, which is aiming raise £370,000 towards lifesaving treatment for Katie Wright, who has been diagnosed with leukaemia for a second time.
Alex Hannah, director of Miyagi and Luche Libre, says: “We hope with the support of our customers we will be able to help Katie and her family get closer to the money she needs for lifesaving treatment.”
