That’s right folks – we’ve extended our food donations and we’re now going to regularly donate food supplies to the animals at Edinburgh Zoo, in addition to people, desperately in need of sustenance in our local area.
Graham Blaikie, owner of the Mercat Grill said: “My Mum heard that Edinburgh Zoo was in urgent need of monetary donations to help finance feeding their 1000 animals during lockdown, which costs them tens of thousands of pounds every month.
“So, following on from our ‘Soup(er) Hero campaign to help feed people in desperate need – we wanted to do what we can to help the animals at this incredibly difficult time, when the bulk of the zoo’s income, comes from visitors. Therefore, we’re going to donate as much produce as we can on a regular basis. So far, we’ve dropped off 12 crates of fruit, vegetables and salmon.”
