In a generous gesture, Bob & Berts Ballymoney, will be offering ‘free school meals’ to Children who would normally be eligible for these at school, but can’t due to the announced closures.
In a message on the various Facebook pages across their stores, including Ballymoney, the company announced:
“In such uncertain times like these our whole community must pull together! If our Government closes schools there will be little children all over NI & Scotland going hungry! Some children only have one warm meal a day and that’s in our schools.
“If you normally get free school meals then as long as we are open and we can get supplies then discreetly mention to your server at the till between 1100 & 1400hrs that you get free school meals and we will sort out with one of our kids meals for free.
“If there is a store near you then pop in!”
