Kids can eat for just £1 at COSMO Derby – with city restaurant donating proceeds from Charity Tuesdays to Derby County Community Trust

YOUNGSTERS can eat for just £1 at a popular city centre restaurant next month – with proceeds going to charity Derby County Community Trust (DCCT).

COSMO Derby will launch ‘Charity Tuesdays’ on September 10 with every £1 being donated to the Trust, which has a variety of programmes aimed at raising the hopes and aspirations of people living in Derby through the power of sport, physical activity, health and education.

Successful projects include the award-winning Rams in Kenya; an annual trip the Trust makes to the slums of Nakuru in Kenya, where volunteers from DCCT aim to improve the facilities at five partner schools. Derby County Community Trust also run physical activities for disabled people and those suffering with mental health issues.

COSMO Derby Maitre d’, Wee K Goh, said: “Derby County Community Trust is a magnificent charity which does some incredible work. We hope this is the beginning of a long relationship with them.

“Our Kids Eat for £1 initiative last year, where our chosen charity was When You Wish Upon A Star, worked very well and we’re hoping for similar success with Derby County Community Trust.

“We are long established partners of Derby County Football Club – and offer season ticket holders 10% off their meal at COSMO – and so it was a natural progression to work with the charity arm of the club.

“We are very much a family restaurant because we offer dishes which are attractive to all different tastes and children particularly enjoy the independence of a banqueting restaurant where they can help themselves.

“Our Charity Tuesdays will run until November 19 and our aim is to raise as much money as possible for this fantastic charity.”

Simon Carnall, Derby County Community Trust’s Head of Community, said: “We are delighted with the support from COSMO.

“It’s a pleasure to work with them and we can’t thank then enough. Every donation helps us to continue to bring our wide-range of projects - such as Team Talk and Rams in Kenya - to the people of Derby.”

Charity Tuesdays will run at COSMO Derby every Tuesday from September 10 until November 19. Every child eating at COSMO Derby must be accompanied by one full paying adult and the offer applies to Tuesday lunchtime and evenings.

COSMO Derby opened five years ago and serves more than 150 dishes drawn from more than 10 world cuisines, including China, Japan, India and Brazil, as well as a full British carvery.
