London restaurants launch aid appeal for Philippines typhoon

London restaurants are joining together to raise funds to help those affected by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.

Started by The Clove Club on 11 November, Haiyan Aid will see restaurants adding £1 to every customer's bill, and then matching the amount raised. There will also be prizes auctioned via eBay to the highest bidder by 8pm, 25 November. All the money raised will go to the DEC Haiyan Typhoon Fund.

So far the list of restaurants involved includes Hibiscus, Ottolenghi, Upstairs at the Ten Bells, Shake Shack, The Clove Club, Tommi's Burger and Yum Buns.

Typhoon Haiyan struck the Philippines on 8 November, with reports suggesting that anywhere between 2,500 to 10,000 people are feared dead. Over 10 million survivors are now said to be struggling for food, safe water, shelter and healthcare after winds and strong waves devastated villages, towns and infrastructure.

Restaurants, bars and hotels can all get involved by e-mailing, or contacting the fund at on Twitter.
