It's all Greek as coffee shop owner gives charity a boost
GREECE may be struggling with debt but its national dishes have helped a Swansea coffee shop raise a tasty slice of cash for charity.
The menu in Java Coffee House in Picton Arcade took on a distinctly Hellenic look for a week in a bid to raise awareness of motor neurone disease.
The move came about after the shop's owner Shirley Bennett decided to make a charitable gesture after losing her sister to the disease.
As a result £650 has now been handed over to the Motor Neurone Association in memory of Glenis Martin, who passed away five years ago.

Shirley was being supported in the move by her sister's daughter Kate Martin, who also works in the popular shop.
She said: "We made a donation to the Motor Neuron Disease Foundation for a cheque for £650 which they appeared to be very pleased with.''
Another fundraiser is on the menu for next month.
"We enjoyed the Greek week as did our customers so much so we have decided to hold a Welsh week on November 12," said Miss Bennett .
"This time it will be in aid of Maggie's in the grounds of Singleton Hospital.
"We just hope that it will be as successful as the Greek week.''
