AN Italian Takeaway in Shawlands has launched a Pay It Forward campaign to allow customers to pay for dinners for frontline workers.

Piatto, on Skirving Street, have launched a scheme where customers are able to donate to a crowdfunder, with the entire donation going towards feeding frontline workers for free.

Owner, Kieran Paterson, said: "It started with customers coming and donating to us in person, then the lockdown happened.

"We still had customers asking how they could donate so we decided to launch the Crowdfunder so that people could donate without having to come into the shop."

Before the lockdown came into place, the popular Italian takeaway allowed customers to come in a donate to the fund and post their donation on the wall.

Piatto have created over 450 boxes of pasta so far, which they have been delivering to frontline NHS workers in wards and hospitals working to fight against the coronavirus outbreak. 

Kieran has said that anyone with any ideas of nurses, doctors, homeless shelter or even carers who could do with a delivery should get in touch to arrange. 

"It's not just the doctors and nurse, we're talking right down to cleaners and everyone else in between. 

"If anyone wants a delivery, please get in touch through our social media, Instagram is best, and we can organise to get a delivery of food to you.

"Every penny that is donated goes towards the ingredients and the delivery.

"We're not taking any profit, it's all about the Pay It Forward scheme and doing something for others in need."
