A Spalding chippy is frying up for the festive season by opening its doors to the homeless, hungry and lonely on Christmas Day.

Westlode Fisheries, in Spalding Lincolnshire, will have free fish and chips, mince pies and drinks for two hours between 1pm and 3pm as a goodwill gesture to help people out who are facing a desperate December 25.

Still great idea though

This is what a Tory government brings you.
This is the second post I've seen of shops doing this. So nice to see it's catching on. It will mean so much more than a free meal to those that need it.

Thanks for that info. I don't have Facebook so couldn't continue with the link. Just read the info in the link
Beautiful people with beautiful hearts, may you be blessed. Working with the Community at its BEST!!!!
Welldone Guys 🏽

With so much excess around at this time of year, I hope this goes to the right people who actually need a hot meal (as I'm sure the owners are intending)
whoopie more platitudes for an advert, where are all these offers the other 364 days a year. Nothing wrong with a bit of altruism but no need to advertise it to the world and look for plaudits !!

Our humanity is not the same as yours as clearly a chip shop in Spalding on the 25th isn't going to restore our humanity on earth all the time.

We ALL NEED to share this on every facebook page that we can in the hope that Chippies up & down the country follow suit.What a fabulous gesture.

Oh and I bet the lady is a MUSLIM too (For all the haters & nay-sayers).
Lovely lady.
Spalding is not too far from me. Good idea and great for those who struggle at this time of the year. Heated

I don't care what the motive is have some heat.
Particularly interesting story for an area with one of the highest pro-Brexit votes in the country. It's an area where people from the next town are seen as 'foreign' and also an area where immigration is the only thing that's keeping it alive. Once the Portuguese and Eastern Europeans have quit (quite understandably) and gone elsewhere the farms will no longer be profitable and will most likely become wasteland over a period of time. No EU subsidies either. The locals won't work in the fields and haven't done for years - hence the migrant workers.

I might pop in for some after my turkey dinner, always like to fill that gap whilst I’m waiting for the Christmas pud to be lit
Brilliant people. That's the way to do it!

All very good points indeed, however...
I wish the people in this deal the very best of success.
They deserve all the plaudits and positive publicity that they can get for doing this.
A huge well done, and thank you to them.
