    So someone who can afford it gets loads of free food. I hope he orders loads of stuff everyday for the homeless.

    FT-ATB – Mrs Binners works for a large charity that deals with kids in the less salubrious and more challenging areas of the north west. At the end of each day the local Greggs comes and delivers all the unsold food from the day so the kids have all got lunch the next day. They don’t make a big song and dance about it. They just do it. Every single day. And have been doing for years

    People are greedy and will take whatever is free even if it has no value to them.

    Yeah our local Gregg’s give away food to local clubs around here and also to emergency services.

    I doubt Stomzy will actually use it that much but the promotion does them good.

    I would also like to add that the fact that large amounts of free Greggs is delivered to my darling wife’s place of work every day in no way influenced her decision to work there and she came under no undue pressure from me 😉

    I’m surprised no member of the professionally offended has complained about the card being black.

    I like Greggs and I wish they could promote themselves using real people instead.

    I am surprised nobody has complained that they are promoting/targeting certain sector of the community … you know the ones that always go for KFC/McDonald.

    Companies like Victoria’s Secret should take note of this and make sure their unwanted items get to needy children, not just dumped in the bin.

    Or, rather, Greggs have got a good PR company. It has nothing to do with giving him free food.

    Can I just use this as an excuse to post a picture of my bike, when it was back from the powder coaters, resplendent in Greggs Blue with its new graphics….

    Our local Greggs sells off a lot of the food plus a hot drink for £1 in the last hour of business. The idea being for people to buy this for the homeless in a city centre.

    As above, they don’t make a song and dance about it, which is always impressive in today’s awful social media era.

    Holy shit that’d better go straight to the top of the Register of Members’ Interests.

    BTW Greggs P7 is the nuts!

    I don’t know all the details, but Stormzy is a decent bloke who does a lot for others.

    Anyway, it’s not like a Nandos black card, it only offers him delivery globally, he probably still has to pay for it 😉

    Maybe just the homeless ones?

    Has Chewk just said that
    A) Stormzy isn’t a real person
    B) Stormzy belongs to a group of people who eat a lot of McDonalds and KFC

    ?

    Cos, I know racism is OK again generally in 2020, but I thought we were bucking that trend here.

    Don’t think liking McD, Greggs etc is a racial thing.

    Unless you meant beigist against beige ‘food’?

    You’re going to have to explain how that one is racist as I’ve no idea there was only one race who eat fast food?

    Welcome to capitalism, where if you are rich enough, you get EVERYTHING for free.

    OK, Chewk says this

    I am surprised nobody has complained that they are promoting/targeting certain sector of the community … you know the ones that always go for KFC/McDonald.

    and we’re talking about Stormzy who is intrinsically linked to promoting an urban black viewpoint.

    These two together link to the whole black people and fried chicken trope.

    And this isn’t something I’ve just conjoured up – he took the time to write that out.

    Wow! That’s some tedious link.
