A COVENTRY restaurant is opening up on Christmas Day to offer a free hot meal for the homeless, families who are struggling and those generally in need.
Selmina’s Restaurant and Bar 16 in Spon Street is hoping to offer a table service for the lunch but that will depend on whether the city’s Tier 3 restrictions are lifted on December 16.
If they are it will be a sit-down meal but if not, the hot meals will be offered via a takeaway service – which the restaurant is still permitted to do under Tier 3 regulations.
The eatery is run by sisters Selma and Emina.
Emina said: “It has been a really rough year and there are so many people who are struggling or in difficult situations.
“We just want to put a smile on their faces this Christmas.”
