We do our best to support as many worthwhile charities as possible through our Portobello Charity Fund. Our two primary charities are below please follow the links and try to help out as much as possible.


Zest4Kidz is an Irish based charity with a huge heart. The organisation was started to let kids around the world know they are cared for and loved. They facilitate regular projects, which we regularly get involved with, helping children in three main areas, Child Soldiers in Africa, Child Prostitutes in India, Children in Prisons in Eastern Europe and the Orphanage system in Eastern Europe. We find children who have had difficult lives and aim to spend time with them to show them someone cares and that they are not alone.

We recently took part in a trip to Belarus and plan on travelling again with the team in April 2009.


Bóthar is a charity specialising in helping poor farmers in Africa and third world countries to become self-sufficient by donating livestock. By sending cows, goats, camels, pigs, trees and providing education and veterinary back up, Bóthar helps tackle poverty and support sustainable development.

Here are some pictures of the animals which we have donated so far -
