VOLUNTEERS gave up their Christmas day morning to give out bacon rolls to homeless people.

About 15 workers from McDonald’s restaurants in Glinton, Stamford and Haddon made bacon rolls at the Glinton branch before delivering them to homeless people and emergency service crews.

During the morning, they visited staff at the accident and emergency department at Peterborough City Hospital, fire stations in Dogsthorpe and Stanground in Peterborough, and four homeless shelters.

Police officers also visited the restaurant in Glinton to get their free breakfasts.

Spokesman Cheryl Carter, who gave up her morning, said: “During the morning we delivered nearly 300 bacon rolls and drinks to people and everyone was excited to see us and so grateful for the food, particularly those in the homeless shelters.

“It was really nice to be able to do our bit to help make someone’s Christmas day a little more enjoyable.”

She thanked franchisee Matt Jarrett.

Cheryl said the volunteers hope to be able to deliver to people in Stamford next year and anyone interested in receiving breakfasts should visit the Stamford restaurant in Ryhall Road with a letter addressed to Cheryl Carter.
