Mansfield restaurant offering NHS and carer discounts to say 'thank you' for pandemic efforts
A Mansfield restaurant has announced ‘NHS Wednesdays’ offering NHS and social care staff half price meals.
Andwhynot on Leeming Street announced the scheme, which starts on October 27 and runs for four consecutive Wednesdays.
Jono Edwards, who owns Andwhynot with his business partner Paul Anderton, said the scheme was to acknowledge their hard work during the coronavirus pandemic, and that other sectors would also be recognised in the new year.
He explained: “This offer is a gesture that we promised to our local NHS during lockdown, however we have also included the care sector too – as people who work in care can often get overlooked.
"We all must acknowledge their hard work plus the emotional side effects of caring for the most vulnerable during this pandemic.
"We will, of course, be inviting other sectors who worked extremely hard and kept the country ticking throughout the pandemic to come and see us for a great offer at our venues in the New Year.
"This is just one way for us to be able to say ‘thank you’ and we, as a company, have the strong belief of ‘look after our own’ and ‘pay it forward’.”
