Kind-hearted staff donate tips to charities

Kind-hearted staff at two popular Saddleworth venues closed by the coronavirus have donated their tips to charities.

Charles Brierley, who owns the White Hart at Lydgate (pictured) and Dinnerstone in Uppermill, said: "I am truly humbled and proud of our teams at The White Hart and Dinnerstone, who have unanimously agreed to forfeit their March tips and donate them to a charity.

"The Dinnerstone team are giving £1432 to Barnabus Manchester and the White Hart team are giving £1783 to Shelter

"It all started on Monday morning when one person posted in the team WhatsApp group 'Just a thought…as we are lucky enough to still being paid through this, do you think it would be a nice idea to forfeit our March tips and send to a homeless charity?' 

"The idea was quickly picked up by the other team WhatsApp and by 5pm everyone had unanimously agreed.

"It’s just a shame that bookings had been decimated in March by Coronavirus, otherwise there’d have been a lot more to donate."

He added: "Please everyone, help the NHS and follow the latest Government guidelines."
