Cleethorpes shop offers heart-warming Christmas gesture

For many Christmas is a time for festive cheer, but it can also be a particularly hard time for people dealing with loneliness and money problems.

In a bid to tackle the issue, several businesses in Cleethorpes have announced plans to open their doors to those in need on Christmas Day.

In addition to Cafe Baraka, which is offering free meals, Howlin Jacks’ Records, on Cleethorpes High Street, is also opening their doors between 11am and 1pm.

On their social media, Howlin Jacks’ Records shared a post informing locals of their opening on Christmas Day.

As the cost-of-living continues to spiral, and global, international uncertainty looms, the record store recognises Christmas time can be a ‘tough time for some people’, and to combat this, they have opened their doors for those in need during Christmas.

Visitors will be offered free hot drinks and mince pies.

Owner Matt Driver said: “Christmas time can be a tough time for some people.

“If you or anyone you know would like some company, or maybe you just want to break up the day, why not pop in for a chat and listen to some records.”

Responding to the heart-warming gesture on local wrote: “What a very kind & thoughtful thing to do.”

“What a lovely gesture! I’m sure there will be people there to celebrate with you!” another added.
