The team at Slug and Lettuce in Islington are hosting a ‘Who’s Your Hero’ night from 5pm on Friday 22nd February in the hope of raising over £300 for the armed forces charity, Help for Heroes.

The team will be dressing up as their heroes, David Attenborough and Lady Gaga have been muted, and hope that their customers will also get into the spirit and don similar attire.

Speaking about the event, Eleanor Butler, general manager of the Slug and Lettuce said: “The Who’s Your Hero’ night is just one night in a whole month of fundraising activity that we are hosting for Help for Heroes and we think it’s going to be great night.

“Not only does it give everyone the chance to dress up and let their hair down, it raises money for a great cause. Come dressed up as your hero or, if you don’t fancy dressing up, come along and try to guess who is who! There will be prizes for the best dressed hero, including a meal for two people with wine at Slug and Lettuce and a bottle of champagne.

“We’ll also be offering two-for-one cocktails all night, 25% off all sharing platters and all bottles of wine will be just £10.95 from 5-7pm, so bring your friends along and have a great night with us.

“We’ll also have collection buckets dotted around the bar so people can drop in any loose change after their round or to empty their pockets of those coins that weigh down your pocket, wallet or purse!

“Our customers are always really generous whenever we host fundraising events so we hope that this month will be just the same.”

Each of the seventy-one Slug and Lettuce bars up and down the country will be hosting its own fundraising event or challenge for Help for Heroes over the course of the next few weeks.

“Our bars are fantastic supporters of charity and for many of them, they have a special local cause close to their hearts”, said Nicola Stuart, Slug and Lettuce’s Brand Development Manager, “But every year, for one month, all the bars come together and choose a single charity to fundraise for. For the second year in a row our mangers have chosen Help for Heroes. Last year we raised just over £21,000 and hope that this year we can beat that target.”
