MORE than £100 raised by the owner of a Clevedon pizza shop has been taken to Uganda to help with the poor living conditions in the country.

Sarah Parker, whose son Tim works at Pizza Magic in Old Street, informed the shop’s owner, Alex Isgin, about the plight of Ugandan people, prompting him to raise money via a Magic Monday promotion at the store. The money raised was used to buy wellies, rain coats and bikes for people in the community to help during the rainy season.

Sarah, who lives in Tennyson Avenue, said: “I spent two weeks in Uganda with the charity Uganda Concern UK.

“The community mobilisation teams who received the articles sent notes of thanks and a present to Alex and my son.

“Alex was very moved by this and has offered to put the promotion on again on Monday.”
