Crown Carveries free meals for nurses

Crown Carveries free meals for nurses

THOUSANDS of nurses miss out on traditional celebrations every year, whilst the majority of the nation puts its feet up for Christmas.

According to research revealed last year by the ONS (Office of National Statistics) over 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.

To reward the dedication and expertise of these unsung heroes, restaurant brand, Crown Carveries, is for the first-time offering a free carvery meal to all nurses between Monday 9th and Saturday 14th January, inclusive at each of its 118 restaurants nationwide.

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 9th January to download the 'free carvery meal' voucher and present this along with their current ID card to staff at their nearest restaurant.

Chris Brewer, senior marketing manager at Crown Carveries, said: "Nurses spend all year looking after others and it's about time we honoured their dedication. Most of us have witnessed firsthand the excellent job they do on a daily basis; however they often don't receive the recognition they deserve, especially at Christmas. As the UK's most regal carvery brand, we felt it was only fitting that we take the lead and roll out the red carpet to show our appreciation, by offering all currently-serving nurses a meal on the house."

"At Crown Carveries we pride ourselves on delivering a right royal welcome for all of our guests and at only £3.89 for a roast meal, Monday to Saturday, this is just a small festive gift from us to the UK's nursing angels."
