A pub is giving out free meals to struggling families during the school holidays.
The owners of Bristol pub and restaurant the Crown Inn in Keynsham are providing lunches and take-away dinners to any child who wants one during the school holidays, in a bid to stop youngsters who would usually receive school meals, going hungry.
David Yeomans, who owns the pub with his partner Luke Skinner, said: “We’re not bothered about taking any money over the bar, it is purely for the families and the children. We’ve had people down here, the parents have had a glass of water, the kids have had squash and a meal, and then they’ve gone home. It’s not a moneymaker.”
