A DUNFERMLINE restaurant has dished up a donation of £2,000 to the Peacocks in Pittencrieff Park. 

After treating volunteers to a free lunch, Dhoom Indian Streatery on New Row handed over a whopping donation which will keep the peacocks fed and well looked after for around five months. 

Dhaneshwar Prasad and his team gifted the Peacocks In Pittencrieff Park a £1000 donation and pledged to keep the money coming whenever he could.

He has now been able to donate once again and he explained that his kind-hearted customers had contributed to this impressive donation.

Prasad said: “We said back in March that the peacocks in The Glen are an absolutely fantastic attraction, bringing in many visitors to Dunfermline, along with providing great delight to families everywhere when they are in The Glen. 

“They are also the symbol of Dunfermline, as well as being of Indian descent. We are committed to helping the volunteers who look after them so well.

"We know how important community support is!”

He was delighted to hand over this latest amount at the special lunch last week.

It all plays a part in Prasad's vision for his award-winning restaurant.

He continued: "Whether it’s providing free meals to NHS heroes, partnering with Carnegie Dojo, donating prizes to charity raffles or hosting charity dinners, we are committed to always doing what we can, even when times are still tough for our sector, as they still are.

“The Peacocks in Pittencrieff Park volunteers told us that food alone for the birds is £100 a week so every pound donated is significant for them."


Carlyn Cane, one of the volunteers from Peacocks in Pittencrieff Park added: "Once again Prasad has gone the extra mile to provide us with another amazing donation. 

"We are very grateful and can assure everyone that the money will be very well spent indeed. We wish to thank him, his team and his customers who contributed.

"It was lovely to come in for lunch once again with our whole team, as we are all so busy and don’t get the opportunity very often. You get looked after so well here at Dhoom!”

With the streatery's fifth birthday fast approaching, they have a lot more community events in the works. 

They even have a new taster menu on the way. 

"We are very grateful for the amazing support we get from the people of Dunfermline who have embraced our concept wholeheartedly," Prasad added. 

"Mumbai is next on the map of India for us to explore, with our new tasting menu launching on the 6th of September.

"Once again, it's a tastebud-tingling journey, this time through the vibrant streets of Mumbai, a city famous for its street food.

“We very much hope our customers enjoy it!”
