A BIG-HEARTED businessman is serving a beefed-up burger to help a brave firefighter.

Welsh chef Gary Lewis, who owns Jax Snax, has created a special hand-made steak burger, topped with haggis, laverbread and leeks.

Half the proceeds will go to the rehabilitation fund in aid of Andy Adams, who was left paralysed after a wall collapse during a deliberate blaze in Larkfield last year.

Gary, who runs the snack bar at James Watt Dock Marina, said: “We started selling the burger last Friday and will be be selling it for a month.

“Quite a lot of firemen come here as customers, so we thought it would be nice to do something to help Andy.

“We charge £6 and half the proceeds will go to the fund.

“It’s going down very well with customers — we’ve raised £300 already.

“We’ve created quite a few burgers for charity and this is a good cause.”

Gary has previously created mouthwatering burgers to support a whole host of charities, including Every Kid Deserves a Toy Inverclyde, the Queen Mary Restoration Fund and Epilepsy Scotland.

He also recently dished up some posh street nosh for the crew on visiting super-yacht Amaryllis, which berthed at James Watt Dock marina for a month.

Gary said: “The crew would come to Jax Snax every day for food so the girl who works for them asked me if I could do a farewell meal for the 23 crew before they left.”
