AN Oldbury pizza takeaway gave away more than 1,200 free meals.

Big Singh's on City Road staged the giveaway yesterday (Sunday November 21) to mark a special date in the owner's religious calendar.

They gave away free boxes of pizza, fries and a drink - with passing cars even flagged down and handed freebies.

The move, from 11am till 4pm, was to celebrate the birthday of Guru Nanak Dev Ji.

Owner Satnam Singh said: "We are Sikhs and wanted to celebrate this special day.

"We have out between 1,200 and 1,300 free pizza and fries boxes.

"We couldn't do it last year because of coronavirus so it was good to be able to do it again this year.

"Everyone was happy."

The move went down well on social media with people commenting on it.

Rebecca Hiscutt shared the above video on the I Grew Up In Oakham Dudley Facebook page saying: "Fair play to Big Singh'ss handing out free pizza,fries and a drink today.

"Even flagging down cars so people don't miss out."

Another person said: "We got some on way shopping and way back.

"Lovely gesture."
