Highly anticipated Caribbean restaurant and bar Turtle Bay has revealed it will be making its grand opening a charitable affair, by asking diners to pay what they think for their meal.
This opening day fundraiser aims to raise money for the Leeds West Indian Centre Charitable Trust, with diners on the first day of trading being asked to make a 'pay as you feel' donation, rather than their bill. Turtle Bay has then pledged to match the amount contributed by customers with its own donation.
The proceeds will be put towards one of the Leeds West Indian Centre Charitable Trust's community projects, to help ensure the continuation of its Friday Luncheon Club for the elderly for at least another year.
The 'pay as you feel' event will take place on December 15 (bringing forward the restaurant's original plan to open on December 21), from 11am until 9pm.
The minimum donation is £1, with the maximum being the usual price of the meal. Drinks will not be included in the fundraiser and must be paid for separately. Turtle Bay is accepting bookings for the evening, but is also encouraging people to turn up on the day, too.
The new Leeds restaurant is the result of a £1m investment and has seating for 150 people within the 4,200 sq ft venue in shopping centre The Light.
