ONE of Chorley’s newest places to eat is offering customers free fish and chips for one day in a fund-raising event for its adopted charity.

Nana Jan’s is opening its doors on Sunday to bring in money for Derian House, which is celebrating 25 years and has the task of raising around £4million this year to keep its vital services going.

Nana Jan’s has decided to give away 250 small portions of fish and chips in 250 minutes.

In return, the chippy wants customers to each make a donation to the charity.

Janet Colclough, founder of Nana Jan’s, said: “We really wanted to do something to celebrate Derian’s 25 years of care and raise much-needed funds for the charity.

“We can also give something back to our community.

“The team at Derian House carry out amazing work with the children and their families and we are thrilled to have adopted them as our chosen charity.

Mick Croskery, fundraising co-ordinator at Derian House said: “Nana Jan’s has been supporting the charity since its opening in April and this latest event builds on all their other great work for us.

“We are really grateful to Nana Jan’s for organising the Charity Chip Challenge.

“It’s a fantastic way to help us raise funds whilst making sure people can enjoy something delicious and rewarding in return.

“Our team will be on hand to collect donations and we look forward to a fun and successful day on Sunday.”

The charity event runs between 1pm and 5.10pm at the shop on Barnes Wallis Way, Buckshaw Village, Chorley.

The company is also thanking partners Midland Fish, Wards Potatoes, Middleton Batter and VA Whitley for their support of the day.
