The operator behind 73 cocktail bars and restaurants, Revolution Bars Group, has announced a partnership with the UK homelessness charity, Shelter.

In 2018 alone, Revolution Bars Group hopes to raise more than £150,000 through fundraising events and charity promotions, with some managers having already organised local fundraising events.

The group is on course to open six new sites for brands Revolution and Revolución de Cuba this year – with a branch of the latter opening in Birmingham this month another earmarked for Newcastle-upon-Tyne in June.

Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with poor housing and homelessness by providing advice, support and legal services.

'Fun and creative' fundraising 

Revolution Bars Group executive chairman Keith Edelman said: “What makes this partnership so exciting is that its instigation came from the ideas of our general and area managers.

“The team was passionate about finding more ways to give something back to local communities and commented that they often see the harsh reality of homelessness when working in city centre locations.

“The partnership is a great example of the commitment of the team, which is excited to raise funds to support this important charity.”

Shelter’s director of fundraising Andrew Harris added: “We are thrilled to be working in partnership with Revolution Bars Group to raise so much to help people struggling with homelessness and bad housing.

“We’re really looking forward to seeing and hearing about all the fun and creative ways the group plans to support us.”

As reported by The Morning Advertiser​, Revolution Bars Group recently appointed former head of property at Las Iguanas Nick Clarke as acquisitions and estates manager.
