DINERS of contemporary Chinese restaurant, Tattu, have generously donated £6,000 to youth homelessness charity, Rock Trust.
Guests from across the country were invited to dine exclusively at the new venue and, at the end of their meal, welcomed to ‘pay as you feel’. The generous donations were then matched by the owners, brothers Adam and Drew Jones, and presented to one of Scotland’s leading youth homeless charities.
Ahead of its grand opening, the new restaurant located in the heart of Edinburgh chose to work with Rock Trust in a bid to help tackle youth homelessness.
Rock Trust aims to end youth homelessness in Scotland by ensuring every young person has access to expert youth specific services to assist them to avoid, survive and move on from homelessness.
Adam Jones, co-founder of Tattu, said: “As we open the doors of our new venue, we want to ensure we engage with the local community, particularly with organisations that are making a real difference.
“Rock Trust is an incredible charity carrying out crucial work not just here in Edinburgh but across Scotland. We’re proud to say that our diners have contributed so generously to support such an important cause.”
Kate Polson, CEO of Rock Trust, said: “We were delighted when Tattu reached out to us to say they wanted us to be the beneficiaries of its charity event. Support from our community is integral to our work helping young people avoid and move on from homelessness for good.
“It’s brilliant to see a new local business immediately choose to use their position to make a tangible difference in their community.”
Funds raised for Rock Trust are the highest raised to date by the restaurant and its diners. Tattu Edinburgh is the brand’s fourth venue and it’s first in Scotland – as part of the opening of each venue, the restaurant hosts an exclusive charity dinner in partnership with a local non-profit organisation.
Tattu is a modern Chinese dining concept officially launching on Friday, 8 November, located on West Register Street.
