A local pub is offering North Shields Macmillan nurses a free roast dinner every Sunday throughout May to thank them for their hard work.

North Shields Macmillan nurses are going to be rewarded for all their hard work throughout this month.

All of the charity’s nurses will be able to enjoy a free roast dinner every Sunday at The Gunner in Trevor Terrace as part of the pub’s Macmillan May fundraising drive.

May is a special month for healthcare staff across the world as today (Thursday) marks International Nurses Day, the anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth.

William Godfrey, general manager at The Gunner, said: “We’re proud to support Macmillan and want to reward the nurses so we hope they enjoy our offer of a delicious free roast every Sunday throughout May.

“Their care makes such a difference in the local community.”

To claim the meal, the nurses must present Macmillan identification when placing an order.
