Heather Mills crusade to get more people thinking and eating vegan nosh is expanding once again. A few months ago, Mills was hard at work in the Bronx exposing kids to vegan alternatives to meat. She ended up donating $1 million in food products to the children of Hunts Point in the South Bronx. Now, Hello Magazine is reporting that the celebrity has purchased a seaside cafe in the UK and plans to turn it into a vegan-only eatery. From the article,
The 41-year-old has taken over the Big Fish café in Hove, East Sussex – where she used to eat often with her husband and their daughter Beatrice before the couple’s divorce. “They’d have veggie breakfasts and soya milk tea,” says the café’s former owner Nick Short. “Heather said she’d like to buy the place if it came on the market.”
When Nick decided to sell he remembered the conversation and got in touch with the former model to work out a deal. An agreement was finally signed on Friday for £140,000 – less than the pre-credit crunch figure of £255,000 which former proprietor Nick says was verbally agreed on.
Reportedly, Heather will take all fish and animal products off of the menu. Said a spokesperson, “I think Hove, any town really, will be well served by a healthy foods cafe like this.” Good luck on the venture, Heather!
