At COSMO we have always been proud to demonstrate our social responsibility, especially by being an active part of the community and supporting local charities.
COSMO Derby are supporting Derby County Community Trust (DCCT) who use the longstanding reputation of Derby County Football Club to improve lives through sport, physical activity and education. Their specially designed programmes raise the hopes and aspirations of people living in Derby.
DCCT run physical activities for disabled people and those suffering with mental health issues. Their most recent initiative is Team Talk – free sessions held across Derby where men can talk about their mental health to trained professionals.
They also fundraise for the award-winning ‘Rams in Kenya’ which is an annual trip the Trust makes to the slums of Nakuru in Kenya. Volunteers from DCCT aim to improve the facilities at five partner schools.
How you can get involved
Youngsters can eat for just £1 at COSMO Derby next month – with the proceeds going to DCCT.
COSMO Derby is proudly launching ‘Charity Tuesdays’ on September 10 with every £1 being donated to the Trust.
Ahead of the launch of Charity Tuesday, COSMO Derby will welcome Derby County mascot Rammie to their city centre restaurant. Rammie will be at COSMO Derby during lunch on Friday, August 30 to the delight of young fans.
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.”
At COSMO, we make sure that all our restaurants are welcoming to families and we offer dishes which are attractive to all different tastes. Children will love the independence of a banqueting restaurant where they can help themselves and parents will love this special offer!
The COSMO Derby Charity Tuesdays will run until November 19 and their aim is to raise as much money as possible for DCCT. Every child eating at COSMO Derby must be accompanied by one full paying adult and the offer applies to Tuesday lunchtimes and evenings.
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 them 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.”
We are thankful at COSMO to have an incredible opportunity to make lives better through fundraising for charities. We also have the chance to engage with the lovely people who visit our restaurants, which provides a fantastic way to spread messages about the charities we are working with.
