Dedicated local business supporter gets yet another takeaway

A DEDICATED supporter of local businesses has ordered yet another takeaway, he has confirmed.

Tom Booker is selflessly determined not to let businesses in his community go bust and is supporting them by existing almost entirely on delivery food.

He said: “I don’t like the word hero. I’m just doing what little I can to help.

“I’m careful to spread my philanthropy around, for the sake of fairness. Curry last night, Chinese Tuesday, pizza Sunday. I’m even having Thai just to show I care.

“Also it’s independent shops. No Burger King or KFC or any of that, because they’re not open. So doubly good.

“I don’t do it for thanks, I do it because it’s what needs to be done.”

He added: “Also, I’ve been sourcing my beers locally from Ahmed at the corner shop, going up there for a fresh couple of eight-packs once a day.

“Hopefully the world can learn from my example. We can rebuild from the ground up.”
