HOMELESS people were given fish and chips to mark the 90th anniversary of the original Harry Ramsden’s restaurant in Guiseley.

Wetherby Whaler, which took over the site in 2012, donated 90 fish and chip suppers to homeless people in Leeds city centre, in collaboration with the Leeds Homeless Partnership.

The partnership is a voluntary organisation which helps to provide vulnerable people with hot meals, drinks and clothing, as well as access to safe housing.

Harry Ramsden opened his first fish and chip restaurant in White Cross, Guiseley, in 1928. The restaurant closed its doors in December 2011.

The company’s director Caroline Murphy described the 90th anniversary as a “momentous occasion.”

She added: “It was only fitting to share the celebration with a deserving local cause, and Leeds Homeless Partnership does a great deal to support people in need across the city.”

Kevin Bell from the partnership said: “The feedback from all on the night was very positive, and much appreciated. It was lovely to see their faces light up when they realised that someone was aware of their situation and willing to help.”
