AN award winning Redditch chippy will be giving away FREE food today

The Golden Carp, which is in the running for this year's Fish and Chip Shop of the Year Award, will be giving away free fish and chips.

The shop, in Matchborough Centre, will give a free meal to the first 20 people through the door.

The chippy is in final 10 of the flagship Fish and Chip Shop of the Year Award category of the 2020 National Fish & Chip Awards.

Fish and chips are the UK’s favourite takeaway.

Research commissioned by Seafish, the organisation that runs the National Fish & Chip Awards, shows that more than 45 per cent of people in the UK buy fish and chips at least every other week, with most buying as a treat for themselves or because they consider it a family tradition.

Marcus Coleman, chief executive at Seafish, said: “With just under one week to go, we’re eagerly awaiting to find out who will be crowned the best fish and chip shop in the UK for 2020."

The winner of the Fish and Chip Shop of the Year Award will be announced at The National Fish & Chip Awards’ 32nd anniversary awards ceremony in London on 23 January 2020.
