AN INDIAN takeaway has donated a whole day’s worth of takings to a Weston charity.

Pappadoms in Milton Road has given £1,106 to Vision North Somerset, which helps more than 2,000 blind or partially sighted people across the district.

Sayd Ahmad and his four-year-old son, Samir, presented the charity’s development officer, Sue Potepa, with a cheque at the Neva Road site this week.

Sayd raised the funds by donating all the money taken from the takeaway on Boxing Day.

Sue said: “We really appreciate this donation and will use it towards the cost of running our social clubs, providing home visitors and volunteer drivers to alleviate the loneliness experienced by many elderly people who have lost their sight.”

To donate to the charity email sue.potepa@visionns.org.uk
