A little bit of the green stuff will go a long way towards helping a local LGBTQ+ support charity.

Leafy, the new Scandi-inspired salad bar and gift store in St Albans' Christopher Place, is celebrating Pride Month by donating 20 per cent of the profits from sales of its brand new Rainbow Salad to Ask for Clive.

Ask for Clive partners with venues to promote inclusion and to create welcoming environments for the LGBTW+ community.

Johanna Zissman, who co-runs Leafy with her husband Oliver, said: "It's important to us as a business to do our bit to celebrate Pride Month and to support not only our local LGBT+ community but the UK-wide community.

"And with Ask For Clive being a local charity and us being a local venue for dining out, it seemed the most natural decision for us to help raise funds for such a worthy charity."
