Our North Midlands team has supported local Shifnal restaurant, Christopher’s, to get up and running ahead of its launch as lockdown restrictions begin to ease across the UK.
The team paid for the restaurant to provide a free Sunday lunch service for NHS staff in and around Shifnal. The staff were able to choose from a selection of roasts, which they could then collect from the restaurant as a takeaway.
Christopher Jordan, owner, said: “We are incredibly grateful for Taylor Wimpey’s support ahead of our official launch. It felt amazing to be able to provide our frontline staff with a free meal and we served over 40 people during the day. The unprecedented closure of all restaurants in March has had a huge impact on the hospitality industry. I’d like to say a massive thank you to Taylor Wimpey for supporting our new local business venture.”
Carl Cooke, Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey North Midlands, commented: “In light of the Coronavirus pandemic, we know how difficult it can be for new local businesses to get up and running. We’re delighted that we were able to help Christopher’s restaurant and support our NHS staff at the same time. We are committed to giving something back to the local areas in which we are building and in such difficult times, this is more important than ever.”
