Local independent restaurateurs on a mission to save Christmas by giving away £5000 to one lucky guest to help with the cost of living crisis

With the current interest rate hike reaching 3%  – the highest level seen since the end of 2008 – the cost of living crisis has got from bad to worse.

Well the owners of Aluna, Siamais and Lulu Wild in Birmingham cocktail bars and restaurants are planning to give back to the community where they can … in a big, big way!

With electricity bills rising, the independent restaurant group, Enchanted Ventures have pulled together to ‘Pull you a Pint’ AND Put £5000 in the Bank! Yes 5000 British pounds for one lucky guest!

The owners are ALSO offering to give away a free pint when you enter the competition. Naomi Aly said, “It seems like money is escaping our bank accounts at every opportunity.  This £5,000 is to spend on whatever you choose. It could be 2 years of energy bills, a well deserved holiday or save it to treat your family this Christmas.”

“It’s a real tough time at the moment, and due to a bit left over at the end of the quarter, we thought we’d put it to good use and remind people you can still come out into the city and have fun. So come into Birmingham, grab a free pint at some of our best cocktail bars in Birmingham City Centre and potentially win £5000 to spend on whatever you need most. What have you got to lose?”

Naomi continues, “When we had the opportunity to offer a financial prize towards something, we thought this was something that could help anyone, and we knew we had to help our community if we could. And as we can’t give it to everyone, at least we can offer a free pint instead.  We know a long recession is looming and eating and drinking out is normally where people tighten their purse strings. I suppose this is our way to say we are here and we want to help where we can.”

The competition is open to anyone over 18 and can be entered at any of the Enchanted Venues : You can go to Lulu Wild a cool, modern Chinese restaurant and sit on their bunny chair. Or head to the golden wings at Aluna cocktail Bar in Mailbox or the beautiful birdcage at Siamais Thai restaurant in Brindleyplace.
