A Balby restaurant is offering free homemade cake as a thank you to local ‘designated pushchair drivers’ – the unsung parenting heroes who have the selfless task of interrupting their dinner to try and get their little ones back to sleep.
To help give back to hard-working parents in Balby, the Woodfield Farm Farmhouse Inns dining and carvery has teamed up with Absolute Radio to celebrate the efforts of designated pushchair drivers and reward them for their dedication to parenting, with a free cakeaway to enjoy on the house.
Parents will simply need to state they are the ‘designated pushchair driver’ when ordering a main meal to receive their consolation for an interrupted dinner: a delicious slice of homemade cake, baked in house by Woodfield Farm’s Cake-a-tier.
Andrew Jordan, general manager at Woodfield Farm, said: “As a family-focused restaurant we know all too well that someone often has to take responsibility for getting young children back to sleep while dining out as a family.
“That’s why we’re offering designated pushchair drivers in Balby a free cakeaway to enjoy on the move whilst they tend to their little ones – it’s the least we can do to champion the unsung heroes who so often have to watch their food go cold while everyone else tucks into a delicious plate of carvery!”
Andy Bush from Absolute Radio’s Hometime Show, said: “As a dad I know first-hand how frustrating it can be when you’re given the role of designated pushchair driver –pacing around a carpark whatever the weather, trying to get your baby to go to sleep.
“This is why we put a call out for pubs and restaurants to get involved and support our cause. We’re thrilled to be able to join forces with the Woodfield Farm to be able to celebrate the ‘guardians of the pushchair’ and give them a special little treat to make up for missing out dinner time with friends and family.”
The trial will be available at all Farmhouse Inns dining and carvery restaurants from 21 January 2019 to 13 February 2019.
