Thank You Cibus!

Thank You Cibus!

Today we’d like to say a HUGE thank you to the Giorgio and the team & customers at Cibus Pizza . During the soft launch of their new restaurant in Levenshulme, they asked customers to donate to LGN, instead of paying for their meals and drinks.❤️ They raised well over £600 for us – which as a small charity will make a big difference! The money will be used to support isolated older people in Levenshulme, a cause we know Giorgio is passionate about. The reviews donators left about the food were amazing too 🙂 Another fantastic local business giving back to the community – Thank you Cibus!!You can find Cibus at: 847-9 Stockport Rd, M19 3PW
