STAFF and customers at a Cudworth chippy have managed to raise more than £650 for Barnsley Foodbank Partnership.
Lakis Fish Bar raised a total of £670 for the charity through donations from customers after they launched their free kids lunch at half term.
A spokesperson for the restaurant said: “We decided at half term to feed all kids for free at lunch time between 12pm and 1.30pm every day.
“We then had people wanting to donate towards it which we felt was so lovely and heartfelt, however we didn’t feel right taking money for it so we decided to put it towards a local foodbank.
“It was our version of Children in Need - we kept it local.”
