In response to the devastating earthquakes in Turkey and Syria, Fleur restaurant has pledged to donate all profits made tomorrow, 9th February to earthquake relief in the region.
The team, led by Chef, Bobby Geetha, will be donating 100% of their profits to Children’s Charity, UNICEF, who have called for support this week following this natural disaster.
As reported across the globe, on Monday the 6th of February, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit Turkey and Syria.
Since then thousands of people have been displaced with 11,000 locals declared dead.
Following this disaster, UNICEF have stated, “We are especially concerned for the safety and well-being of children who have lost their homes, those who are sleeping rough, and those who have been separated from their families.”
“In Syria, we are mobilising supplies and services to support the urgent needs of children and families. And we are ready to support the response in Türkiye as and when requested by the government.”
Fleur, situated in The Light, are encouraging the people of Leeds to join them tomorrow in their efforts to support this cause.
Founder, and head chef, Bobby Geetha, said, “Seeing the hurt and the heartbreak this natural disaster has already caused is devastating. We want to support those affected in the best, and fastest, way possible which is why we’re committing to donate all of our profit tomorrow to the relief effort.
“We hope that as many people as possible in our city will do the same by either joining us at our restaurant tomorrow, or donating directly to UNICEF and the many other charities supporting the earthquake relief efforts”.
The restaurant will be open from 11am tomorrow in an effort to raise as much money as possible in response to this natural disaster.
