Two Crown Carveries restaurants, the Peartree Bridge Inn, on Waterside, and the Wolverton House, on Stratford Road are offering a free carvery to all its local nurses between Monday 9th and Saturday 14th January.
According to research revealed last year by the Office of National Statistics over 88,000 nurses worked on Christmas Day in 2010, meaning 22 per cent of all nurses in the UK missed out on precious time spent with friends and families to look after those in need.
As a result, Matthew Trimmer, manager at the Peartree Bridge Inn, and Calum Sims, manager at the Wolverton House, have decided to take a stand and plan to reward these unsung heroes, whose dedication and expertise often go unnoticed, particularly over the Christmas period.
Enjoying the free carvery couldn’t be easier. All currently-employed nurses simply need to visit www.crowncarveries.co.uk or www.facebook.com/crowncarveries from Monday 9th January to download the ‘free carvery meal’ voucher and present this along with their current ID card to staff at either the Peartree Bridge Inn or the Wolverton House.
Matthew said: “Nurses spend all year looking after others and it’s about time we honoured their dedication. Most of us have witnessed firsthand the excellent job they do on a daily basis; however they often don’t receive the recognition they deserve, especially at Christmas. As part of the UK’s most regal carvery brand, we felt it was only fitting that we roll out the red carpet and offer a meal on the house to show our appreciation.”
Calum added: “At Crown Carveries we pride ourselves on delivering a right royal welcome for all of our guests and at only £3.89 for a roast meal, Monday to Saturday, this is just a small festive gift from us to all our local nursing angels.”
