… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.
You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya.

A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
