FOUR Stirling charities are in line for a funding windfall after philanthropist Garreth Wood said he would donate all profits from his restaurant group The Boozy Cow.

All £210,000 profit generated by the group’s Stirling venue will be shared among charities, including the Eilidh Brown Memorial Fund, set up by Gordon and Nicole Brown after they lost their daughter to cancer. Other local charities, PLUS Stirling, Start-Up Stirling and Stirling Carers Centre, will all receive £12,500.

Mr Brown said the donation was a “massive boost” to plans to build a respite centre.

The remaining profits will be divided between CHAS, the Archie Foundation, the Youth and Philanthropy Initiative, Edinburgh, and the STV Children’s Appeal.

This is the second year that Mr Wood’s The Boozy Cow group, has given away all its profits, with almost half a million pounds being donated to date.

Mr Wood, son of oil tycoon Sir Ian Wood, commented: “We work very hard throughout the year to make our units as profitable as possible and we remain committed to giving 100 per cent of our profits back to the local communities by directly supporting charities in the local areas.”

Mr Wood also announced an additional five charities will receive a share of the profits generated by the group’s Aberdeen venue, which reopened today following a refurbishment. The beneficiaries in current financial year will be Charlie House, Cash For Kids, Cornerstone, Grampian Autistic Society and Aberdeen Cyrenians.
