A CARDIGAN business is to once again donate a day’s takings to help out a local charity appeal.

Last year, Seyran’s Pizzas at St Mary’s Street pledged to hand over all the money it made on August Bank Holiday Monday to the ‘Riley’s Wish to Walk’ campaign.

The takeaway was overwhelmed with the response from its customers on the day and handed over a cheque for £2,000 to Riley and his mum and dad, which helped go towards a £40,000 life-changing operation for the Cardigan youngster.

Now Seyran’s plans to repeat its generous gesture, with all the takings this year being donated to the Freya’s Steps appeal, the Newcastle Emlyn youngster who has had both her legs amputated and is now raising money for prosthetic legs.

“After the success of last year, we decided we had to do it again,” said Ozi Zeven, who runs Seyran’s with business partner Yasar Nas.

“I had a chat again with Paul Davies from Cardigan Charity Fundraising Appeal. He had told me about Riley’s appeal last year and this year mentioned Freya’s Steps.

“I was so sad to hear her story but we have already met her down at the shop and she’s a tremendous little girl – so happy and cheerful - and hopefully this will help her out.”

Ozi said that when he made last year’s donation to the Riley’s Wish to Walk appeal, he hoped for nothing more than to see Riley walk through the shop door and he was delighted to see that wish come true.

“It was amazing to see him when he came in,” added Ozi. “That was the moment we all wanted and it made our day. It was just fantastic.

“Now we hope for something similar with Freya.”
