A KIND-HEARTED Saddleworth wine merchant is donating 10p from every bottle sold to UNICEF’s fund in the wake of the devastating Nepal earthquake.
Julian Garratt, 33, who owns The Wine Vault on High Street, Uppermill, says the donation will apply to all beers, wines and spirits sold from until their shop closes on Sunday, May 10.
He explained: “My father Phil and I have had wonderful times in Nepal trekking with friends, and we have always been greeted with the utmost respect and the greatest welcome.
“Whatever we raise will be sent towards the humongous effort needed to start to help them rebuild their lives.
“It might not be much, but it’ll be a start,” he added.
And they have received the backing of another local business as Team Spirit, from Greenfield, have agreed to match the total raised by The Wine Vault.
The 7.8-magnitude quake struck Nepal on April 25, with the death toll currently at around 7,056 while more than 15,000 people have been injured and left without homes and food.
