LONDON, UK – Movie star George Clooney dropped into a sandwich shop staffed by people who used to be homeless in Scotland’s capital Edinburgh Thursday, November 12.
The Social Bite cafe donates all of its profits to charity and runs a scheme which allows customers to pre-pay for a meal or hot drink which will later be given to a homeless person.
A quarter of its staff were formerly homeless and it has a menu created by a Michelin-starred chef which includes haggis and jambalaya.
Social Bite co-founder Josh Littlejohn said the Ocean’s Eleven star had donated £1,000 (1,400 euros, $1,500) to the cafe as well as paying £5 for food in the cafe.
“I like what they’re doing, I think it’s a very important cause. I think the idea that we can all participate in everyone’s difficulties is really important,” Clooney, who was greeted by a crowd of fans, said before going inside.
Clooney is in Scotland for a string of engagements including speaking at a business awards ceremony in Edinburgh. – Rappler.com
