Leicester city party venue Bistro Live has two reasons to celebrate, having reached its 10th birthday and raised a substantial amount of money on behalf of Leicester Charity Link.
Bistro Live hosted three events last week, including a VIP birthday gala night with live entertainment, and raised £1,000 to give to the charity which helps people in Leicestershire and Rutland in times of need with everyday essentials such as money for food, beds and clothing.
“We’re very grateful to Bistro Live for supporting us during its celebrations. For every £10 donation the Charity receives it raises £100 through charitable trusts so this money will be able to help even more local people than first might be imagined,” said Susie McEniff, director of marketing and fundraising for Leicester Charity Link. “At this time of year we get more requests than ever for help so the money couldn’t have come at a better time.”
Mark Henderson, director of Bistro Live, which has venues at Nottingham and Milton Keynes as well as here in Leicester, added: “We wanted to do something extra special this year to celebrate reaching such a great milestone. While we are very fortunate to work in an industry which celebrates the good times in life, we appreciate it’s not always like that for everyone. We know the money is going to do a lot of good for local people and it’s our way of thanking everyone who has supported Bistro Live over the last ten years.”
