No sooner have the staff at Hanbury’s Takeaway finished celebrating winning South West Independent Fish and Chip Shop of the Year 2013 than they’re getting on with organising their next big event to celebrate the fact that it’s 30 years since Hanbury’s opened in Babbacombe.
David says “We won the competition in 2012 and now we’ve won for 2013 as well which is absolutely thrilling. As I’ve now been here for 30 years we thought it was time to do something special and that’s exactly what we plan to do in a few weeks’ time.”
The idea is to have a day that benefits as many people as possible so David has combined offering his fish and chips at a stunning 30% off (1% for each year he’s been trading) and then giving all takings on the day to Rowcroft Hospice. David said “I’ve worked with Rowcroft many times and this seemed like an ideal opportunity to hopefully raise a bit of money for them. But also I wanted to do a special offer for all our loyal customers, as well as hopefully some new ones. We work very hard to provide great fish and chips and we’re very lucky to have so many people who enjoy coming to Hanbury’s and buying them from us. So, a special discount to say thank you to all our customers seemed like a good idea.”
This special charity day will be on Tuesday 23 October when the Takeaway will be open from 11.30am until 9pm. The price of a medium cod and chips will be reduced by over 30% from £5.95 to just £4 per portion.
In the meantime, Hanbury’s is looking for anyone who remembers when it opened or has any stories of eating at Hanbury’s from years gone by. Get in touch via Twitter, Facebook or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org .
This event is being put on as part of Rowcroft’s Dine at Mine campaign.
