New causes for restaurant chain
Boozy Cow adds venue and new charities
A restaurant group that donates all its profits to good causes has opened its fourth venue and increased the number of charities it is supporting.
The Boozy Cow Dundee restaurant officially opens today, with philanthropist Garreth Wood revealing that a further five charities would receive a share of profits from The Boozy Cow restaurants.
Announcing the new charity partnerships, Mr Wood said Boozy Cow would include in its profit sharing Hot Chocolate Trust, Mid-Lin Day Care, Dundee Woman’s Aid, Art Angel and Help for Kids, bringing the number of good causes the company is supporting to 18.
Last month, Boozy Cow announced it was giving away £210,000 in profits to charities including CHAS, The Archie Foundation and the Youth and Philanthropy Initiative in Edinburgh, with almost half a million pounds given away since the company opened its first venue in Aberdeen in 2014.
Mr Wood said the response from people in Dundee had been overwhelming. He said: “I’m proud that we at Boozy Cow are donating our profits to help these fantastic causes.”
He said Boozy Cow had poured significant investment into the former Laing’s site, a well-known Dundee landmark, adding that the business had overhauled the building and revamped the legendary beer garden.
