Mowgli Street Food chooses Chestnut Tree House as latest charity partner

Restauranteur, author and TV chef, Nisha Katona is bringing Mowgli Street Food to Brighton and has chosen Chestnut Tree House as the restaurant’s charity partner.

Set to open on 24 February, Mowgli serves Indian food described as ‘a million miles away from the curry stereotype’. With locations across the UK, from London to Glasgow, Dukes Lane in Brighton is the 16th location for Mowgli, with restaurants in Bristol and Edinburgh also set to open soon.

Created with charitable giving at its heart, Mowgli has raised over £1.2m for charities to date, with each Mowgli location supporting a dedicated house charity recommended by the restaurant’s local community. From the first day of opening, the Brighton restaurant will be raising vital funds for Chestnut Tree House, with £1 from each bill being donated to us to help support local children with life-limiting conditions and their families.

Explaining the importance of being part of the local community, founder of Mowgli, Nisha Katona MBE said: “We are so excited to have found that perfect Mowgli home on Dukes Lane. Mowgli exists to enrich lives in the cities that we go to – the lives of our teams, our guests, and our communities.

“We’re delighted to adopt Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice as our house charity for the Brighton restaurant. We know the charity is an important part of the local community, supporting families who are living in Brighton & Hove as well as across East and West Sussex. Being able to increase our charity partners and raise more money for them each year motivates us to take Mowgli to even more cities across the UK.”

As well as enjoying healthy, fresh Indian food, diners visiting Mowgli Street Food in Brighton will be helping to ensure local children and young people with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions receive the care and support they need.

“Chestnut Tree House currently cares for around 300 children and young people across Sussex,” explains Hannah Seltzer at Chestnut Tree House.

“Our care team focus on adding life to shortened years – providing specialist care and supporting the whole family, however long their journey may be. It costs over £4m every year to provide our care and only a small proportion of this comes from central government. The rest comes from generous individuals and businesses in our local community. We are extremely grateful to Brighton Mowgli for choosing us as their house charity. The difference Mowgli make to their house charities is inspirational, and Nisha does so much for local communities. It’s an honour to be part of it and their support will make a huge difference.”
