Currently we are supporting The MAZI Project, a charity tackling food inequality for Bristol’s disadvantaged 16–25 year olds. The MAZI Project strives to challenge the food inequality in the city by connecting disadvantaged young people to Bristol’s rich food culture. To empower young people with the skills, knowledge and ingredients to live and healthy and well-nourished lifestyle. They support young care leavers, youth recovering from homelessness and young asylum seekers.

Love You To The Moon And Back raised over £33,000 to four charities that supported Merv’s family through their toughest of years. Kieran became a Moon Trekker and pledged to cover 567 miles… 5k a day, for six months in running, cycling and walking. The restaurants also supported Merv by gaining him sponsors to eat Cantina’s hottest chillies, whilst Bravas and Gambas donated 50p of sales from their fried aubergine and molasses dish.

Tallulah and Sara hosted several events to raise almost £12k between them. Kieran raised over £10k with a massive support from local suppliers and businesses.

We are proud to have raised almost £10,000 for Penny Brohn, which will help people use a wide range of services provided by the charity, such as a Treatment Support Clinic and group or individual courses for those who have been recently diagnosed with cancer and are awaiting therapy or those who are currently going through cancer treatment.
In 2015, we raised over £7000 for Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders), supporting the amazing work they do helping refugees, working in war zones and areas affected by natural disasters and coming to the aid of those most in need, around the world.
