A MIDLOTHIAN restaurant has dished up the dosh to help needy Nepalese children.

The Radhuni, in Loanhead, was the venue for a recent fundraising lunch for Classrooms in the Clouds (CitC). The charity was founded by local man David Woods to provide affordable, accessible and sustainable education to the children of Nepal.

Matin Khan’s award-winning restaurant served a two-course banquet for guests and donated 30 per cent of the income to CitC.

The Radhuni’s £300 contribution was boosted by a raffle, auction and donations, taking the event total to £786.

CitC’s third project in Nepal, an eight-classroom school, is expected to be open at the end of next month.

Mr Woods also thanked The Little Funky Flower Shop, Midlothian Council, Paddy’s, Boots, The Pentland Roadhouse, Diamond’s Diner, Medusa, Bliss Beauty and Spa, Paterson SA Hairdressing, IKEA and Emma Cleland for raffle donations.
