A non-profit initiative from Troon café, bar and restaurant Lido has reached a fundraising milestone as it donates £5,000 to Hospitality Action – a charity that offers lifeline support and services to people working across the hospitality industry.
An increase in new dog owners and sustained daily walking habits for locals has contributed to the popularity of Lido Troon’s daytime pop-up, which offers takeaway breakfast, lunch, coffee and cakes from 9am – 4pm seven days a week.
The Troon pop-up has welcomed many regulars since it launched last month as well as several new faces of the four-legged variety picking up their very own pup-puccinos.
As well as the donation to Hospitality Action, which Lido owner and operator Buzzworks has been an avid supporter of, additional profits have been allocated to supporting Buzzworks own people via the Buzzworks Wellbeing Fund.
Kenny Blair, Buzzworks MD, said, “Giving back to our people and charities of choice has always been high on our agenda so we’re proud to support them doing what we do best – providing world-class hospitality.
“It’s been a difficult year for our industry but I’d like to thank everyone for their continued support. We hope to hit our target of raising £10,000 for good causes through the Lido pop-up before dine-in restaurants reopen and we can welcome people back inside our venues.”
Lido Troon pop-up is in addition to the existing Lido To Go takeaway which continues to operate from 12pm Thursday – Sunday. Troon residents can order all their Lido favourites to go including wood-fired pizzas and indulgent desserts as well as freshly prepared cocktails or at home cocktail kits.
