Staff at a St Albans restaurant clubbed together to donate all their tips to charity this Christmas.
Both cash or card tips left on December 9 by patrons of Holywell Hill’s Hatch have been given to Rephael House Counselling Centre - a charity which provides therapy for children and young people.
The team spread awareness about the event by wearing Christmas jumpers all day and putting up signs, managing to raise about £365 overall.
Manager Liam Judge said: “I think it is really good to think outside the box and do something for someone else, and we get very well looked after in terms of tips - although people seemed to be even more generous than usual.”
He added that they deliberately chose a lesser-known organisation as he believes smaller charities can be sidelined at Christmas.
