WHEN YOU DONATE TO OUR STAFF FUND
WE’LL ENTER YOU INTO OUR EXCLUSIVE DRAW
Why do we need a Staff Fund?
It’s been the toughest year we’ve ever known. None of us at Kitchen W8 would still be working if it wasn’t for the furlough scheme, but the reality is that our staff have been living on severely reduced earnings, particularly after the ruling that the service charge may not be taken into consideration when calculating the 80% on offer. The service charge makes up part of the overall earnings so this has proved to be a significant blow to us all.
With rents to pay and families to feed, 60% of the normal wage has just not been enough to help our staff keep going. So, we’ve been really lucky that Phil and Rebecca, who own Kitchen W8, have done everything they can to raise money to cover the difference – from selling our Friend for Life vouchers to starting our Food to Order scheme, to dipping into restaurant reserves.
However, now that the third lockdown has struck and with every other avenue now explored we feel like marathon runners who have just hit the wall. So we’re asking for your help to get us over the finishing line.
It would be amazing if you could donate what you would have done in service had you been able to dine with us and in thanks we will enter you into our exclusive prize draw.
Everyone who donates will be entered into a draw to win some fabulous exclusive prizes – see below.
