A popular Inverness café and bicycle workshop was surprised to find medical staff rallying behind it this week.
While many are keen to donate to charities supporting the courageous efforts of frontline NHS staff during the Covid-19 crisis it was junior doctors themselves who reached out to help the Velocity social enterprise in the Crown area of the city.
The café has been closed in line with lockdown measures but reopened this week on a restricted basis and staff returning found a lovely surprise waiting for them in the form of a note and cash sum slipped through the letterbox.
A message on Velocity’s social media page read: “As you may have heard, our café reopened last week and will be open for takeaway from 10am-4pm, Tuesday-Saturday.
“Our café team was delighted to find this note from the junior doctors at Raigmore Hospital.
“Thanks for supporting your local coffee shop as well as keeping us safe and healthy during lockdown!”
The note, pictured above, proves the unique, award-winning eaterie, which has offered bicycle maintenance, educational and health and well-being information since 2012, is just what the doctor ordered.
