Cooking up a storm for Christmas
THE spirit of Christmas is alive and well and cooking hundreds of bacon butties.
Volunteers from Mcdonald’s restaurants in Glinton, Haddon, Wisbech and Stamford are giving up their Christmas Day morning to make breakfast for the homeless and emergency crews who have to work.
They will be up early tomorrow to head to the Glinton restaurant where several police officers will join them for breakfast before heading out to deliver 300 bacon rolls and drinks to several homeless centres as well as Dogsthorpe and Stanground fire stations, Peterborough City Hospital and the ambulance station.
Cheryl Carter said: “Normally you get up on Christmas Day, open all your presents and then eat and drink and by 3pm you just slob about.
“It’s really enjoyable and then on top of that there’s the pleasure of giving the bacon rolls. Everyone is so grateful. It’s just nice to be able to do something for those who can’t celebrate Christmas like we can.”
