The owner, Cengiz Bolat, told the Diss Express: “We had about 30 people have free Christmas meals this year and we hope to make it an annual tradition.”

Mr Bolat added that regular customers also took advantage of the Christmas generosity, although some didn’t know about the offer.

The shop also gave away free food to children in costume on Halloween.

Mr Bolat said: “It was amazing to see the children smiling on Halloween. They were queuing outside the door.”

With the giveaway to return at Christmas next year, Mr Bolat said it was important to remind people to be generous at this time of year.
