Enniskillen takeaway to provide free meals for those in need on Christmas Day

An Enniskillen takeaway is to open on Christmas Day to provide free food for those in need in the local area.

Kebab shop Chaska on Forthill Street in the Co Fermanagh town has been offering free meals for homeless, elderly people and those in need for the last six years.

The shop was recently nominated as one of the best kebab shops in the whole of Northern Ireland.

Owner Imran Janjua, who hails from Pakistan originally, says it is a part of his faith to help others in need.

“It’s a core part of our faith to take on these charitable actions,” Imran said.

“At Chaska we feel like we are part of the Enniskillen family, because no matter what faith a person follows, we all come from the same place.

“If someone in our society is in difficulty, then everyone else has the duty to help them.

"Dinner will be served free of charge between 4pm and 6pm, with Imran adding that the response in previous years has been overwhelming.

“We have been doing this for the last six years now and the support we get from the local community has been overwhelming.

“We are hoping that happens again this year and we are able to feed even more people.”
