A Ross-shire cafe will be celebrating its first birthday by donating a day’s takings to the victims of the Nepal earthquake disaster.
The Capstone Cafe in Alness, which is owned by Rosskeen Free Church, will give all proceeds generated next Tuesday to the Nepal Disaster Fund.
Normal opening times will be extended to 9am-7pm to allow more people to participate in the good cause.
When the cafe opened in May 2014 the first day’s takings were donated to hep local man Ally MacLeod purchase a disability bike.
Rosskeen Free Church minister Rev Iain MacAskill said: “We thought the best way to celebrate the first year of operating the Capstone Cafe was to do something to reflect our Christian ethos. I was delighted to support our cafe manager’s suggestion to give all of the day’s proceeds from the cafe to the Nepal Appeal. I’m sure the people of Alness and Invergordon will support this compassionate initiative which will help provide food and water to those affected by the earthquake.”
Cafe Manager Gerry Dolan said: “We are really pleased that in our first year we have gained many regular customers and have become known as a place to enjoy good home-made food in a relaxed environment. Our aim is to serve the community and we are thankful for this opportunity to extend support to the people of Nepal.”
