Dublin Restaurant Continues Christmas Tradition And Donates Earnings To Help The Homeless


Due to COVID-19 restrictions, 2020 has been a hard year for businesses around the country. However, one Dublin restaurant has shown the restrictions have not hindered their Christmas spirit, as wing wizards Wishbone donate Thursday’s entire takings to charity.

The restaurant is keeping up its Christmas tradition of helping Inner City Helping Homeless. All takings made on December 3rd will be donated to the charity which helps homeless people and rough sleepers across the capital.

The tradition has kept up since 2016, when the restaurant opened its first Wishbone branch on Montague Street. While they do realise their business has been strained this year, they have decided to stick with the generous tradition and make the gesture again this year.

However, this year’s donation will receive a boost from their recently opened branch at Gilbert & Wrights in Malahide. Both restaurants are combining Thursday’s takings and funds raised will go directly towards the important work undertaken by the ICHH.

Speaking of the gesture, ICHH’s Brian McLoughlin said: “The team at Wishbone have been fantastic supporters of our work and their kindness is always appreciated.

“Every year, since we have opened, we donate a day’s takings to inner city helping homeless. After the year we have had as a business, we can’t really afford to do it. BUT it’s more important this year than ever. So on Thursday 3rd of December, we will donate our takings from Montague street and Wishbone @gilbertandwrightmalahide to this amazing charity @ichhdublin.

They also collected shoe boxes and new toys:

“We will also on the day accept shoe boxes and new, unopened toys .. please help us make this the best year yet and thank you for all your support PLEASE SHARE xx team Wishbone🍗.”

Lets hope that this Christmas spirit will continue to spread and people continue to help these wonderful charities.
