Cook­ing up a storm for Christ­mas

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

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.”
