WIMPY ANNOUNCE MIND AS ITS CHARITY OF THE YEAR

Wimpy UK has chosen Mind, the leading mental health charity, as its Charity Partner of the Year. The move will see Wimpy restaurants and staff nationwide focus on a raft of fundraising events, with the goal of raising a minimum of £25,000.

Wimpy franchisees and their staff voted overwhelming for Mind, which was one of four charities shortlisted. Chris Woolfenden, Wimpy UK general manager, said: “We are honoured to be working with Mind, which plays such an important role in raising awareness of mental health issues and making sure that advice and support is there for those who need it.”

Wimpy Takes a Stand Against Plastic Straws

Wimpy UK is to cut down on the use of plastic straws throughout its casual dining restaurants with immediate effect. From now on, Wimpy’s table service restaurants nationwide will no longer automatically provide plastic straws with any soft or sparkling drinks purchased by customers who dine in its restaurants.

Although plastic straws will remain available for those who choose a Wimpy Thick Shake, the company has committed to sourcing a sustainable and suitable alternative “as soon as possible”.
