There’s no question that Qualicum Beach restauranteurs Philip and Rachel Pascoe care about their customers, but they say they also very much cares for the people who serve them.

When Philip heard that one of their servers was badly injured in a motor vehicle crash recently, he sprang into action to help.

The owner of Fish Tales Cafe said he has kicked off a bottle drive to help injured Bowser resident Veronica Traplin, who remains in critical condition in Victoria.

“Basically, we have one of our ladies who is a server who got in a bad motorbike accident and we wanted to help raise some funds,” he said. “It will be quite a while until she’s better, so we want to help her with her recovery.” Rachel agreed.

“Its tough on them, so if there’s any thing we can do to help, we will,” she said.

The couple have set up an account at the Qualicum Beach bottle depot, so anyone who would like to drop off bottles, cans and other recyclable materials can do so, with the money collected going into a fund to help. As well, recyclables and other donations can be dropped off at Fish Tales Cafe. The bottle depot will be open this Sunday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. to take donations.
