Restaurants in Aberdeen and Edinburgh have donated more than £250,000 to charity.

The Boozy Cow restaurants - which are operated by Speratus Group - will donate £263,000 to five charities.

Speratus is owned by businessman Garreth Wood, the son of the oil tycoon Sir Ian Wood.

Garreth Wood said: “Every single penny of profit of our Boozy Cow restaurants will go to registered charities.

“Life is a careful balance between what you do for yourself, and what you do for others, and to finally share this profit with our partner charities has been something of a dream for the group and for me personally.”

The profits will go to the Children’s Hospice Association CHAS, the Archie Foundation, VSA, which focuses on social care, STV’s Childrens appeal and the Youth and Philantrophy Initiative, Edinburgh.

CHAS chief executive Marie McGill said: “We are so pleased that the Boozy Cow has chosen to work with CHAS.

“This gift will be used to help pay for important work at Robin House, our hospice in Balloch for babies, children and young people.”

Sir Tom Hunter, trustee of the STV Children’s Appeal, said: “We are thrilled that this fantastic initiative has raised an incredible £40,000 for the STV Children’s Appeal in just seven months.”
