People living in Ruskington and Upton, Lincolnshire, can enjoy our fish and chip Friday giveaway at their local chippy on Friday, February 10th. We hope our February giveaway will give residents a lift at a time of year when the weather is cold and the nights are long.
The gesture comes as we bring our fast and reliable full fibre broadband services to these communities, providing game-changing internet speeds for residents and businesses.
Julian Chalk, our Head of Enablement and Engagement, said: “We’d love as many residents as possible to have a cheer-up chippy tea on us and enjoy a treat at what can be a challenging time of the year.
“We know times are tough and the cost of living is rising for many people and this is a small gesture from us to help out and lift spirits.
“We love getting involved in all sorts of community events and initiatives and this fish and chips giveaway is another example of us giving back to the rural areas we serve.”
Ruskington and Upton are among the latest communities to be offered our fast, reliable broadband as we continue our rollout across rural areas in North and West Yorkshire, North Lincolnshire and Lincolnshire.
We shared details on how residents in the two communities could register for their free chippy tea on our social media channels and it was a sell-out with all vouchers claimed in 48 hours!
Each voucher covers one portion of fish and chips. Members of our engagement team will also be at the fish and chip shops on the day of the giveaway to meet residents and answer any questions they have about the broadband packages available to them.
The two fish and chip shops involved in our giveaway are:
• Upton Fish Shop, High Street, Upton.
• The Elite Fish & Chip Company, High Street, Ruskington.
Once residents have registered and received their voucher, they simply turn up at the fish and chip shop on February 10th to receive their free portion.
Sally Clarke, owner of Upton Fish & Chip Shop, said: “We’re delighted to be teaming up with Quickline to offer free fish and chips to people in Upton. We’ve had the chippy for 16 years, when the shop came up for sale at auction and we were the winning bidder.
“When Quickline got in touch with us to ask if we’d be interested in supporting the scheme, it was a no-brainer – who doesn’t love fish and chips on a Friday, especially when they’re free!?”
