Staff give freely of their time to help Haiti

STAFF at an Olton Indian takeaway restaurant worked for free for a night, to help raise funds for the Haiti earthquake appeal.

The idea was the brainchild of Indigo Xpress owner, Farooq Miah, who felt the restaurant should do its bit to help people in the devastated Caribbean country.

All profits from the evening were donated, and the final total from the evening, on Wednesday, January 27, topped £300.

Staff from the restaurant, at 360 Gospel Lane, presented the proceeds to Gill Murphy, manager of the Solihull Oxfam shop, in Station Road, who said: “People were incredibly generous, and all the staff worked for free.

“It was great to see such community spirit, and support for the people of Haiti. Three hundred pounds was raised on the night and I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all involved.

“One of the staff members even put his birthday money in. I would also like to thank all those who have donated money to Oxfam following the Haiti earthquake.”
