Fight for Sight, the main eye research charity, teamed up with the famous French restaurant, Orrery , in London’s fashionable Marylebone, the collaboration saw diners raise nearly £700 for vital eye research.
During the promotion the restaurant pledged to support the charity, which funds pioneering eye research to prevent sight loss and treat eye disease, by adding a voluntary donation to each customer’s bill for an entire month. This is the third consecutive year the restaurant has supported Fight for Sight with a fundraising campaign. It has proved food for thought for customers, as over the years they’ve collectively raised over £2,000.
Catherine Woodhead, Director of Fundraising at Fight for Sight said: “We would like to say a huge thank you to Orrery for partnering with us and to their generous customers for their kind donations. We really couldn’t fund pioneering eye research without the support of the public and this promotion gives us an extra opportunity to raise awareness with the diners. Thank you once again to everyone who contributed and helped the fight against sight loss.”
Located above the Conran Shop at the top of Marylebone High Street overlooking the Church Gardens below, guests can enjoy dishes such as Ceviche of salmon, lime and ginger, wasabi avocado, Rump of lamb, young vegetables, rosemary jus and Strawberries, meringue, chantilly, sorbet before donating £1 to Fight For Sight.
Ismael Nuha, Orrery Restaurant Manager, said: “The team at the Orrery were delighted to be able to support such a fantastic charity once again and to be able to raise nearly £700. We would like to thank our customers for being so generous and for their support.”
