BOLTONIANS can get a discount butty today – while helping the homeless at the same time.

Subway launched its annual community initiative, Gloves for Subs, this morning.

Today and tomorrow, Wednesday and Thursday November 8 and 9, customers are invited to donate a new pair of gloves to their local Subway store between 11am-7pm in return for a six-inch sub sandwich for only £1.

All items donated will be distributed to 27 local shelters, housing associations and projects across the region.

Subway developer and franchisee, Neil Denny, said: “We’re delighted to be running the Subway Gloves for Subs campaign again this year.

“Our aim is to keep the many people affected by the cold winter warm through this initiative, so we encourage our regular customers to spread the word far and wide.

“Our staff will be on hand throughout the day to greet those who wish to donate a pair of gloves and we look forward to welcoming local residents and visitors to our stores to support this important day.”

Subway has several stores in Bolton, including in Crompton Place arcade, Newport Street and Manchester Road.
