THE owner of a fish and chip shop in Wirral is spreading some festive cheer by offering a meal free of charge to all residents at one chosen care home or nursing home in the area.

Boris Bektashev and his partner Tatyana took over SelFish on High Street in Bromborough at the end of March last year.

Throughout the year the couple have helped the community in a variety of ways.

In June, they were selling chips for 50p to their customers as a way of helping tackle the cost-of-living crisis and in September they sponsored junior football team, U9s Allport Hawks Junior Football Club.

Now, Boris and Tatyana have decided to run a competition to give a care home or nursing home a completely free meal for all residents.

Speaking to the Globe, Boris said: "We do quite a lot of charity work and we’ve been wanted to do something like for a while.

"We get many orders from care homes and nursing homes and we want to give something back and this is a nice way to do it.

"People aren't able to order food for the whole home, so this is for a good cause."

The competition has opened today (Saturday, December 9) and will close on Sunday, December 17.

You can nominate a care home or nursing home by commenting on their Facebook post here.

The winner can choose the food they want, and it will be delivered to them within SelFish's opening hours. 

Nominations must be in the Bromborough, Bebington, Eastham, Rock Ferry, New Ferry or Ellesmere Port area.
