Today is the day!
Chancellor Rishi Sunak’s Eat Out (still can’t believe they’ve called it that) to Help Out scheme launches today. In essence, the government will put a maximum of £10 towards your food bill in participating restaurants, between Mondays and Wednesdays throughout August. It’s all part of the government’s attempt to kickstart a shrinking economy.
Is this prioritising economic growth over the health of the people, given the lack of a vaccine? I couldn’t possibly say. But yeah, probably.
Anyway, not every restaurant is participating in the campaign, but a lot of them are. For more information on the scheme click here.
