Leading politicians from all Scotland’s major parties have united to congratulate Loanhead restaurant Radhuni on its fundraising for cancer sufferers.

A motion from Midlothian North and Musselburgh MSP Colin Beattie, adopted by the Scottish Parliament after winning cross-party support, praised the Bangladeshi-Indian restaurant “for its community support and initiative to help others” following its fundraising for Macmillan.

Radhuni launched the initiative after one of its waitresses was diagnosed with terminal bowel cancer, and collected money from customers during the recent British Curry Week.

Among the supporters of the motion were former Scottish Ministers Jackie Baillie (Labour) and Stewart Stevenson (SNP), and Murdo Fraser, former Deputy Leader of Scottish Conservatives and Shadow Cabinet Secretary for Finance.

Habibur Khan, Managing Partner of Radhuni, commented: “It’s marvellous to see Scotland’s politicians united in such a worthwhile cause.”
