We’re honoured and thankful to have been the August Charity of the Month for Leeds restaurant Ambiente Tapas.

They asked customers to add a voluntary £1 donation to their bills to raise funds for Keeping the Beat, which contributed to a monthly total of £1,497.

They also promoted us beyond the call of duty on Twitter, and gave us top billing on other marketing channels.

The money raised will used to buy FitBits and scales for teen and adult congenital heart patients.

Ambiente’s charity policy is particularly striking. and is a great example of a corporate giving back to the community that supports it.

Inclusion in our marketing output – website links, newsletters & blog posts, social media & in-restaurant promotional literature, thereby increasing awareness of their cause.

A one off payment at the end of the period based on all the £1 donations from customers & an additional top up of £500 from Ambiente.

Ambiente Tapas is situated on Call’s Landing, and they also have two further branches in York.

I’ve never been lucky enough to go, but if their food is as spirited, warm and welcoming as their charity policy it’s well worth a visit.
