Pub meal treat for all ‘angels’

A PUB restaurant in Westhoughton is offering a free carvery to all local nurses between Monday and Saturday January 9 to 14 inclusive.

According to research revealed last year by the ONS (Office of National Statistics) more than 88,000 nurses worked on Christmas Day in 2010, meaning 22% 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, Russell Tucker, manager of the Royal Oak on the A6, has decided to take a stand and plans to reward these unsung heroes, whose dedication and expertise often go unnoticed, particularly over the Christmas period.

All currently-employed nurses simply need to visit or from Monday, January 9 to download the ‘free carvery meal’ voucher and present this along with their current ID card to staff at the Royal Oak.

Mr Tucker said: “Nurses spend all year looking after others and it’s about time we honoured their dedication. 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.”
