To kick start a new charity initiative and help those poverty-stricken people across Midlothian and East Lothian with vital food supplies, we have donated £250 worth of food and drink to East Lothian’s Foodbank. Furthermore, we’re going to match every food item donated by our customers, which you can do safely and conveniently, when ordering from our new take-away service, at time of your food being delivered.
Graham Blaikie, owner of the
Mercat Grill said: “We do a great deal in our bar & restaurant to help
various charities and now more than ever, we really want to do everything we
can to help in this time of crisis. We’ve obviously had to shut our doors to
customers drinking and dining with us but now we’re bringing our delicious
dishes to your door, which will help us try and stay in business, retain our
staff and with our new foodbank collection service – bring much needed
sustenance to those in Mid and East Lothian, who really need it.
“We’re also going to be
making some of our tasty, fresh and wholesome cuisine and dropping these dishes
off on a regular basis for the incredible, brave and hard-working NHS workers
at the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary, to whom we are extremely grateful for their life
saving work. Last night, I dropped off homemade pizzas, lasagnes, fish
and chips, cans of juice and chocolate, with a big thank you note.
“And every week, to bring a
little cheer to our customers ordering take-away, we’ll be selecting at random,
a customer who will receive our Mercat Grill’s ‘Happy Hamper’! We’ll be
putting together little surprises and dropping them at your door – it could be
anything from a voucher for take-away fish and chips, cheese and wine to a
bottle of bubbly!”
