Joshua Simons, Chicken & Blues: ‘As a company, Chicken & Blues is proud to support worthy causes throughout the year, mostly within our own local neighbourhoods. Invisible Chips is a national campaign, but it has resonated with us in consideration of its focus on the hospitality industry. The last 6 months have been very difficult for the sector, many of our friends are still suffering, and worrying about their future. As such, by becoming an Invisible Chips stockist, we are doing our bit to protect the livelihoods of thousands of UK hospitality workers. We are making a £150 donation from our charity fund to get the C&B ball rolling.’
C&B fans can order a portion of ‘Invisible Chips’ for £3.50 through C&B’s online ordering platform, with the money going directly to Hospitality Action. All our chips are 0% fat, and 100% charity. After all, chicken and chips are the perfect pairing, even if the chips are invisible!
Why It Matters (a word from Invisible Chips HQ)
Donations will help individuals and their families get back on their feet by funding grants that cover a range of outgoings, including food, utility bills and school uniforms. We fund home adaptations for people dealing with the onset of life-changing illness and offer financial support for people unable to work due to ill health. We help victims of domestic violence to start new lives and we even cover funeral costs for bereaved people in financial difficulty.
Following the mass closures the industry has already experienced in recent months we’ve already provided grants to over 3,000 people this year. Here’s just one story of somebody we’ve helped.
David is an elderly beneficiary who had just £9.01 in his bank account. With no credit on his electric meter he rationed his gas so that he only used 10p’s worth a day. To make his money stretch, he would buy just one potato, one tomato or one onion at a time for soup. Our grant meant he could have heat, light and ‘proper’ food.
Thanks again for chipping in.
