NURSES who worked over the festive period and missed out on a Christmas lunch will be able to make up for it thanks to a free meal offer.
Two Crown Carveries restaurants, the Peartree Bridge Inn on Waterside, and the Wolverton House on Stratford Road, are offering a free carvery to all nurses between Monday, January 9 and Saturday, January 14 inclusive.
Research revealed more than 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, January 9 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.
