Mowgli Restaurant raises £35,000 for Rainbows

Mowgli, the popular Indian street food restaurant in Leicester, has raised £35,000 for Rainbows.

The Mowgli Trust was set up by founder, Nisha Katona MBE, to specifically raise funds for local charities within the cities she takes Mowgli to, by adding a £1 discretionary donation onto the end of every bill. Since the restaurant business opened in 2014, it has already raised over £1.2million for both local and international charities.

Mowgli Leicester has supported our charity since the restaurant’s opening in September 2019 and has raised over £35,000 for us.

Fiona Carlisle, Corporate Partnership Fundraiser, at Rainbows, said: “We would like to thank Mowgli and all its customers over the past three years for supporting us with their incredible generosity. Without the backing of organisations like Mowgli, we wouldn’t be able to continue providing care to over 300 babies, children, young people, and their families at our Hospice in Leicestershire, in hospital or at home.”

The restaurant, located in St Martins Square, is known for its authentic Indian dishes that are based on the founder’s family recipes. Founder and CEO, Nisha Katona, said: “Mowgli thrives utterly on strong community. It is down to our remarkable teams that everlasting relationships are built with our local house charities. Rainbows as an ardent member of the Mowgli family and we look forward to continuing to support their life changing services, in and around the East Midlands.”
