Brixton Soup Kitchen received a £5,000 donation from the Echo Trust charity last month thanks to BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra DJ and hip hop artist Charlie Sloth.
Deltic Group, the UK’s largest operator of premium late-night bars and clubs, set up the trust to help good causes in local communities.
Charlie, a popular guest at its venues and a supporter of the trust’s Give a Kid a Quid fundraising, was asked to nominate an initiative to receive a £5,000 donation. He chose BSK.
Deltic clubs hold Give a Kid a Quid fundraising campaigns around four bank holiday weekends of the year. The four club managers who banked the most donations, Tom Miell of Oceana Watford, Hal Pearson of Liquid Gloucester, Peter Bell of Club Batchwood St Albans and Andrew Mclachlan of PRYZM Cardiff, joined Charlie at the presentation.
Since it was established in 2002 the Echo Trust has raised more than £2.5 million for good causes.
Russell Quelch, regional director of Deltic Group, said: “We were very impressed with the enthusiasm behind this enterprise.”
Mohamed Hash, a BSK director, said: “It was exciting to meet Charlie and the team. We’re very grateful for the donation which will go towards our general running costs, staff expenses and our electricity bill.”
