Organisations and Charities we support with YOUR help

On our menu – (dishes are marked where we make a contribution) this list gives more detail. Each week we publish a list of donations made and publicise on social media

Bolognese pasta

- The Sunflower Fund charity
https://www.sunflowerfund.org.za/  which strives to increase the number of stem cell donors in South Africa.  In 2013 Massimo had a bone marrow transplant to cure a rare form of blood cancer. Luckily his sister Loretta was a perfect match as a donor, but not everyone is so fortunate.

All spuntini (tapas)

– R2 goes to Bright Start for every spuntino sold
https://brightstart.org.za/ - ‘we are committed to providing a brighter future for children, youth, and adults from low-income families in historically impoverished communities.........through access to better educational opportunities. Our mentorship programme gives on-going support outside the classroom by addressing social, cultural and physical needs as well as parental empowerment, therefore ensuring the child and their family reach their maximum potential.’

Aperol spritz
- HBEVMS – buy an Aperol spritz and R5 goes to Hout Bay Emergency Volunteer Ambulance Service

The Luna pizza

http://darg.org.za/  R10 goes to DARG (Domestic Animal Rescue Organisation) -  a pro-life, non-profit organisation that rescues, cares for, sterilizes and rehomes previously abused, neglected and abandoned cats and dogs. DARG provides a crucial role for the communities of Imizamo Yethu, Hangberg and the greater Hout Bay area

The Margherita pizza
- Border Collie Rescue –
http://www.collierescue-capetown.com/ -  established in 1998 and now rescues, rehabilitates and re-homes many Border Collies in need. Why a breed specific shelter?

The result of keeping a border collie in a kennel or very small confined space can already be seen after a couple of days. They run round and round the kennel, bouncing against the walls and gate, barking continuously. These Collies will be permanently damaged if their confinement is continued. They also stand little to no chance of being adopted showing this "crazy" behaviour. 

Carbonara pasta

- Hout Bay Pets
https://www.facebook.com/HoutBayPETS/ -  is a small non-profit that provides animal care services to the residents of the historically disadvantaged communities of Imizamo Yethu and Hangberg in Hout Bay, Cape Town. These services include a weekly clinic, advice, referrals, vaccinations and education. HB Pets also helps owners fence their yards in and otherwise improve the living conditions of their pets. HB Pets also helps animals from those communities find new homes if they need to. HB Pets' emphasis is on education and empowering pet owners, rather than pet confiscation. HBPets work closely with:

Shaygam,  for whom we collect R1 for every bottle of filtered water sold-  Shaygam rescues abandoned and neglected animals in the Hangberg (harbour) area of Hout Bay.

For every Hot Latina pizza and JJ’s jewels sausage main course sold, we donate R10 to the local CCP (community crime prevention unit) and for every Happy Valley calzone pizza sold, we donate R10 to Watchcon (crime prevention)

House wine (red or white)

– R2 for every bottle sold goes to Gracie Love in a Bowl https://www.facebook.com/loveinabowl/ - feeding the local community in need

For every item sold off our doggy menu, R1 is given to the Underdog Project http://www.underdogproject.org/  - a charity rehabilitating vulnerable youngsters by teaching them to work with rescued dogs, building better lives for the youngsters, while developing more adoptable dogs at DARG (see above)
