Carluccio's cycles 500 miles for Action Against Hunger

Carluccio's cycles 500 miles for Action Against Hunger

Carluccio’s CEO Simon Kossoff and six members of his team are attempting a 500-mile charity bike ride in aid of Action Against Hunger, a humanitarian charity committed to ending child hunger in some of the world’s poorest countries.

The eight-day cycle ride began on Saturday 7 July at Carluccio’s in Glasgow, where Antonio Carluccio saw off the team. The group is cycling to London, travelling via Leeds, Leicester, Nottingham, Milton Keynes and St Albans, where they are stopping at Carluccio’s restaurants.

At every stop, Carluccio’s is donating £1 from each main course sold that evening to Action Against Hunger.

At St Albans on Friday 13 July, supporters can join the cyclists for the last 20 mile leg of the challenge to London’s West End where they will be welcomed by Antonio Carluccio at the St Christopher’s Place restaurant.

Carluccio’s has supported Action Against Hunger since 2008 and has already raised £700,000 for the charity, mostly through a 50p donation from sales of its popular dish Penne Giardiniera. This summer, Carluccio’s aims to break the £750,000 mark and is seeking donations, which can be submitted at their Just Giving page.
