PUB SECURITY DONATES PERSONAL REWARD TO CHARITY
Head doorman, Archie Thomson, who works at the Merchant in Glasgow boosted the pubs charity fundraising having been awarded £225 in compensation.
Archie, who has worked at the pub for 4 years, was compensated having intervened in a domestic situation, assisting a female in distress. On receiving the money he instantly donated the funds to the Merchant’s charity of choice, the Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH).
Upon giving his donation he said: ‘I believe most people would have stepped in to help in the situation and I felt the compensation was unnecessary. Being part of the Merchant team and seeing all the fundraising that has gone on all year has been great fun and I wanted to do my part by turning a negative situation into a positive outcome.’
The General Manager, Steven Samson, spoke of Archie, "Archie is genuinely one of the nice guys, he loves spending time talking to the customers and always remembers a face. Regulars come back every week just to see Archie, and secure in the knowledge they will have a great night and be safe with him on the door.”
