Italian Earthquake Appeal

29 August 2016

Like all of us, Victor and I were stunned and saddened to hear of the devastating earthquake which hit central Italy on Wednesday morning. Tremors and aftershocks were felt as far south in Abruzzo where our family is from and while we are thankful none of our loved ones were caught up in the tragedy, we send our love and deepest condolences to everyone in the affected areas of Amatrice, Arquata, Accumoli, Norcia and Pescara del Tronto.

To raise money for the earthquake appeal we’re offering BYOB on bottles of wine* at any of our restaurants from noon on Sundays in September. In return we’ll ask for a donation of £3.00 (or if you can spare more, then please do) per bottle brought. All of this will go directly to help the relief effort.

*One bottle per person maximum. Beers, sparkling wines and spirits not applicable.
