Foodservice company Green & Fortune has added a St Patrick's Day special to its Rotunda @ Home delivery service, which will include donations to the Clink Charity and the London Irish Centre.
In previous years, Green & Fortune has held St Patrick's Day fundraising lunches at Kings Place in London, raising almost £40,000 in total.
The five-course restaurant kits, starting at £95 for two people, are available nationwide for St Patrick's Day (17 March) and the weekends before and after. Upgrade options include wine and Irish-inspired cocktails such as a black velvet and an Irish boulevardier.
Green & Fortune will donate £10 from each sale to the two charities, and for every box sold it will make an additional donation of £5, a total donation of £15 for each kit sold.
Each sale also includes free entry into a prize draw with prizes including a summer barbecue for up to 10 people in the group's Rotunda bar and restaurant at Kings Place, four tickets to the 2022 Clink Charity Ball at the Royal Lancaster, and an eight-week Irish language course at the London Irish Centre.
Clink graduates will also be volunteering to assist the Green & Fortune team in preparing the food boxes for delivery.
The boxes contain a ‘make your own soda bread' kit with pink peppercorn, chive and smoked sea salt butter; home-cured salmon with celery root rémoulade and wild garlic dressing; slow-cooked bacon chop, colcannon, grilled Hispi cabbage and gravy; warm apple cake with Baileys cream; and shamrock macarons.
The Clink works in partnership with Her Majesty's Prison and Probation service to provide training programmes in prisons across the UK, giving inmates the skills needed to secure work in the hospitality industry after release. The London Irish Centre works to create a hub of culture and support for London's Irish community, with an outreach programme to provide care for those in need.
John Nugent, chief executive of Green & Fortune, said: "We are determined to ensure the day doesn't pass without us marking the occasion to build upon the success of the last two years. While it's disappointing that we can't hold an event in person this year, it's more important than ever that we raise funds for these two great charities.
"The boxes are a great way to mark the day at home or to send to clients, colleagues or friends as a gift. The lunch will be back next year and is sure to be bigger and better than ever!"
Christopher Moore, chief executive of the Clink Charity, added: "I would like to thank the Green & Fortune team for their continued support of our work in reducing reoffending. We are immensely grateful for their generosity, especially during such times as these. I really hope that our customers order this fantastic St Patrick's Day meal from Green & Fortune to cook at home and by doing so know that they are helping the Clink Charity to continue to change attitudes, transform lives and create second chances."
