SNOW CHAOS: Alf's Fish and Chips hands out free lunches to elderly
11:00am Saturday 19th January 2013 in News
JOHN Pearce, of Alf’s Fish and Chips, spent the day taking supplies to elderly people in the area who were unable to get out of their homes.
He said: “It’s something we do every winter when the weather is bad, it’s just our way of doing something for the community.
“My wife does the driving and I walk from the car to the house.
“We will all be old one day, and I would hate to think that someone slipped over and broke a bone for want of milk and bread.”
He added: “We mainly deliver the essentials, but there’s a lady in her 90s who always likes fish and chips when it’s cold.”
