A COLWYN Bay Academy parent has opened her business to families in need during the ‘fire-break’ lockdown measures announced by the Welsh Government.

Mary Eromosele, whose son Harvey is a member of the Seagulls’ U11 team, owns the Town Fryer Fish and Chip Shop on Wellington Road in Rhyl and is stepping up to the plate following a campaign led by Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford to prevent child hunger in the coming weeks.

The Welsh Government have declared their intentions to continue offering free school meals for children in need during the holiday period, but the same motion as voted out of the House of Commons by Conservative Party leaders that sparked a national outcry.

This resulted in an incredible response across the country from Rashford’s initiative, with Mrs Eromosele providing food during the half-term break for those children entitled to free school meals.

During the last lockdown, she provided free meals to the homeless and supplied Glan Clwyd hospital with free meals for a week.

Mrs Eromosele is now continuing her generosity by offering hot food to children who might not get it elsewhere due to the financial implications surrounding the coronavirus pandemic.

She said: “People need help in these awful times.”

Any parents whose children are entitled to free school meals are welcome to call her on 07491 957529 so she can have food ready for collection.
