Jonathan Miller, managing director, said: "It was desperately sad to hear the news break. For those people to lose their jobs without warning must have turned their lives upside down. We wanted to allow them to enjoy themselves, without worrying about money.

"There is a Thomas Cook in Fakenham, and I've been in two or three times, but there's no personal connection. We just thought it was a nice thing to do.

"It's valid until October 31, since after then we will only be open Monday to Friday. After then, we will be working on the run up to Christmas."

The offer is valid for two adults and two children, with proof employment by Thomas Cook.
