RESTAURANT owner Ugar Vata has proved he's far from shellfish by generously donating money to charity for each lobster he serves up.

Ugar, who is patron and cook at The Galley restaurant in Ipswich is donating £1 to Ipswich-based charity Disability Care Enterprise (DCE) for every crustacean that is devoured.

Ugar said: "Lobster is always a speciality on the menu and is particularly popular between now and September. We will be giving £1 to charity until the end of August and so far we've raised at least £250."

But it's not only lobster-lovers who have dug in to their pockets to help DCE. Ugar said that several customers who hadn't ordered lobster had donated money themselves and one party even donated £5 each after their meal.

Last week, The Galley played host to their own lobster week in which seven different ways of serving the slightly sweet tasting shellfish were sampled.
