A pub landlady in Gedling is offering a helping hand to those most affected by the recent collapse of Thomas Cook.
Beccy Webster runs The Gedling Inn on Main Street and has promised Thomas Cook staff a free meal at her boozer when they produce a recent payslip.
The kind-hearted offer is available until the end of October.
The company’s demise on Monday (23) resulted in 9,000 job losses in the UK and left more than 150,000 Brits stranded overseas.
Beccy told Gedling Eye: “A couple of my staff and friends have been affected by the collapse of Thomas Cook and it’s been really sad. It’s hard enough to make ends meet as it is, but being this close to Christmas makes it even harder.
“I just wanted to help in any way I could as it’s nice to be kind and you never know when you might be in a similar situation.
“I hope they use the pub as somewhere to come and chat with colleagues or bring their families so they don’t feel like they are on their own at this horrible time.
The landlady, who also runs The Elwes Arms and Black Horse in Carlton, hopes people will make the most of the pub’s facilities to aid them in their search for new employment.
She added: “We have free wi-fi at The Gedling Inn so they can use that to create a new CV and apply for jobs.”
