Want to cure those post-booze blues? Manchester Hangover Delivery service hopes to ease sore heads

Exclusive by Sam Richardson

There’s nothing worse than waking up after a big night out with the world spinning, your head hurting and your belly rumbling, while you yearn for a greasy breakfast.

Fear not – a solution may be here.

Jason McKnight and Joe Dillon, both 27, have launched the Manchester Hangover Delivery service.

The service will deliver food to people suffering from post-party hangovers – with possible orders including McDonalds, KFC, fry ups and sundries such as Coca Cola and crisps.

Jason said: “It’s something we’ve been talking about doing since university.

“We only set up the Facebook page on Friday night and already we have more than 3,000 potential customers!”

The service will only run at weekends, because Jason and Joe both work in construction during the week.

The scheme will be trialled this week, before the service becomes officially open for business on July 13.

The service will work on a pre-order basis, with customers ordering food on Facebook the night before, and Manchester Hangover Delivery will phone back to confirm the cost of the order, and the time of day it will be delivered.

Jason said: “Thirty minutes before we deliver, we will call you, see how you’re feeling and make sure you’re alive and ready for your cure.

“Hangover Hugs are an optional extra and given free of charge!”

Pricing will depend on the cost of the order, with Manchester Hangover Delivery not making a profit on the food and only charging for delivery.

Food that costs less than £15 will have a £4 delivery charge if is pre-ordered the night before, while food that costs up to £25 will have a £6.50 delivery charge.

Orders up to £35 will have a delivery charge of £8, and orders above £35 will incur a charge of £15 for delivery.

People can order a greasy hangover cure on the day but this will incur a £1.50 charge.
