SCOTTISH not-for-profit bar group The Boozy Cow opened the doors of its new Dundee restaurant today (April 24).
The new Dundee eatery, the fourth in the Boozy Cow group, joins the company’s established restaurants in Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Stirling.
The opening of the new venue came as founder Garreth Wood announced a further five charities will receive a share of The Boozy Cow’s profits: Hot Chocolate Trust, a youth work organisation; Mid-Lin Day Care, which provides care to elderly people who suffer a degree of mental or physical problems; Dundee Women’s Aid, a domestic abuse support charity; Art Angel, which aims to help those suffering mental health difficulties; and Help For Kids, which provides support for vulnerable and disadvantaged children.
The Boozy Cow now supports a total of eighteen different charities; last month the group announced it had donated all of its annual profits, which totalled £210,000, to charity for the second year running.
In total, the group is said to have given away almost half a million pounds since it opened its first venue in Aberdeen in 2014.
Wood said: “Since we opened the first Boozy Cow, I’ve been overwhelmed by people’s excitement and generosity about our mission. I think one of the reasons we’ve built up such a loyalty with our customers is because they like coming to our venues knowing that the profits are going to benefit an organisation in their area.
“There’s no one else doing what we’re doing. Boozy Cow is edgy, it’s exciting and distinctive yet still manages to be family-friendly, and its profits are going to important community causes. There’s nothing like this in Dundee.”
