STAFF at a Weston takeaway worked for free on one of the busiest nights of the year to provide a funding boost for a vital charity.
Workers at Pappadoms Indian restaurant in Milton Road devoted their time and expertise on Boxing Day to collect £1,335 for the RNLI.
All of the takeaway’s takings for the night were this week handed over to life-saving crews from the maritime charity.
Owner Sayd Ahmed – joined by wife Saira Khatun and son Samir – visited the RNLI base at Anchor Head to hand over the cheque.
It was the 10th year running that Pappadoms has donated its Boxing Day takings to a charitable cause.

“We are a community resource which works with and depends on its local community.”
