AN OLTON Indian takeaway restaurant donated an evening’s profits to a special appeal for youngsters born with a cleft lip and palate.

AN OLTON Indian takeaway restaurant donated an evening’s profits to a special appeal for youngsters born with a cleft lip and palate.

The initiative, which raised £300, was organised to help a regular customer at the IndigoXpress restaurant, in Gospel Lane whose son was born with the condition.

Vickie Pritchett’s son, George, was born with a cleft lip and palate last year, and suffered complications with feeding.

Birmingham Children’s Hospital were able to provide Vickie with a hospital grade breast pump to enable her to express milk.

Vickie and her husband David, from Hall Green, made it their mission to raise more than £1,000 to buy another pump for the hospital.

Faruk Miah, owner of Indigo Xpress, said: “We were delighted to be able to help them.

“I would like to thank all our customers who supported this fund raising effort.”

Indigo Xpress is located at 360 Gospel Lane, Olton. Call 0121 707 1950.
