THANK YOU to all our guests, staff and suppliers that helped us do our bit for the STV Appeal and help children living in poverty in Scotland.
This is the third year we've backed the campaign and Friday night saw our team creating complimentary cocktails and mocktails over at STV HQ, quenching the thirsts of fundraisers galore for their live show. This was a celebration of the efforts from across Glasgow, from RBS, Lidl, Glasgow Warriors to school groups, choirs and dancers, with even The Rusk Company - Butchershop and Hutchesons donating a cheque to Sean Batty live on STV! Well done to Martin (Assist GM, Butchershop) for rallying the team!
Between both of our venues, we raised a massive £1500 from customer donations and sales of our AWESOME steaks. Our owners, James and Louise Rusk have generously matched this donation taking to total to £3000 which goes straight to helping children in Scotland. Thanks to everyone who donated all to our supplier Martin Miller's gin for the appreciated support. Our Westbourne Gentlemen was snaffled by many - The Charmer!
Lorraine Kelly revealed the final total raised on Friday night - a total sum of £2,913,083 donated by STV viewers. Amazing results for an outstanding charity! Until next year!
