Bo’ness restaurant to raise money for Ukraine

A BO’NESS restaurant will raise money for Ukraine next month with a special Curry for Kyiv event.

The initiative will see Indian restaurant Bo’ness Spice donating 50% of its takings on 7th April – sit-in meals and takeaways – to the Consulate of Ukraine in Edinburgh.

“The images coming out of Ukraine are truly heart-breaking,” said owner Mohammad Abbas, who opened Bo’ness Spice last summer.

“It is impossible to comprehend the nightmare which these poor people have been enduring since the invasion by Russia started.

“As a devoted family man, to see so many families suffering really struck a chord with me.

“We want to stand with Ukraine in any way possible and on 7th April we will be donating 50% of our takings to the emergency relief effort.

“We are very proud of our involvement in the local community here in Bo’ness and the surrounding areas but when something so tragic as this happens on such a scale in another country we couldn’t just sit around doing nothing.

“We spoke with the Consulate of Ukraine in Edinburgh who have been very helpful and they will ensure the money we raise is used properly.”
