Good Samaritan paying for villagers of Denchworth, Oxfordshire to have fish and chips once per week during the coronavirus lockdown deserves to be saluted
For the next three months every Friday, the 171 residents of Denchworth, Oxfordshire will get £5 per head fish and chips from their local pub, The Fox, free of charge.
Paid for by an individual whom wishes to remain anonymous, the meals will be cooked by the pub’s landlord, Stephen Davidson, at the behest of the “very wealthy in-betweener” – a man “who splits his time between London and Denchworth,” according to the Mail Online.
Of the “lovely gesture,” Mr Davidson commented:
“He is really concerned about people in the village, so he wants to help in any way he can. It is the local boozer for this man… It will be a good thing for the locals, especially for the elderly who are stuck indoors… He promised a hot plate of fish and chips for everybody.”
Whilst one very negative Mail Online reader inappropriately commented: “The class system appears to be live and well in your country still,” most quite rightly reacted positively. We join those saluting this act of generosity and look forward to hearing of other similar examples across the globe as this crisis sadly deepens.
