From the 16th of May, diners at The Stable’s restaurants will be able to make a digital charity donation when they pay by card. In line with Mental Health Awareness Week, the restaurant group is proud to make donating to their charity partner, Dorset MIND, even easier for their guests.
With an option to add 25p to card transactions via the Chip and PIN Machine, 100 percent of the donation will go to charity and will be split with 90 percent going to Dorset MIND, the mental health charity and 10 percent going to the charities chosen by Pennies, the digital charity box. “Pennies is a UK registered charity, and their aim is simple. They exist to help charities make a greater impact. They do this by offering a new, data-free way of collecting donations through a digital charity box, in turn helping improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the charity sector.” As simple as the press of a button, The Stable hopes to be able to help raise even more well-needed funds to help the greater good.
May is the month to make a charitable different at The Stable. This month’s pizza special is the “Brie Your Mind”. The pizza itself features a garlic béchamel base and is topped with balsamic and thyme roasted portobello mushrooms, mozzarella, sliced pancetta, grapes and Somerset brie, but the special ingredient is the fact that £1 of every Pizza Special sold will go to Dorset MIND.
The Stable chose Dorset MIND as its charity partner in March of 2017 and since then have been donating and hosting events to raise funds for the worthy cause. David Gough, Operations Director at The Stable participated in the recent #Day2Day project, which consisted of a “series of short videos from business leaders and influencers in Dorset. The videos are an exploration into their personal experience of mental health at home and within their fields of work.” The social stories have been shared online, with the aim of helping to remove any negative stigma surrounding mental health in the workplace.
Each of the restaurants locations has paired up with a branch of MIND and aims to help make a difference to their ongoing mental health campaigns and support services year-round. The Stable has also appointed MIND Ambassadors amongst their team of Stablehands. These staff are responsible for nurturing the relationship with the charity and promoting the shared values and MIND initiatives within the restaurants.
