THE Red Lion at Willingdon has already had requests for 30 kids meals this week during half term.

The pub is hellping out after the Tories refused to fund free school meals for the needy.

Managers at the pub say: “If you are entitled to free school meals, please be sure to contact us… No one should have to struggle to feed their kids, you will get no judgement here!

“In these times we know only too well that hard times can fall on anyone through no fault of their own.

“Call us!! We can help. 01323 502062.”
