A Romford tandoori restaurant and takeaway has donated 50 hot meals to thank Havering’s frontline workers.
Manager of Bekash Tandooi in Victoria Road, Sulaman Ahmed, “Solly” as he’s known, said: “We decided that as a local business we wanted to support our local community and right now our local NHS staff are working very hard to save lives under very difficult circumstances.

“Many of them are working around the clock and may not have time to prepare their meals. So we decided to share a token of our appreciation and cook over 50 meals for the staff at Queen’s Hospital.”
The leader of Havering Council, Damian White has also been supporting the project and lent a helping hand to distribute. The team worked with Stacy English, a charity event co-ordinator who set it up.
Solly said: “We wish we could do a lot more for the NHS beyond just 50 meals. But as a small business in the local area, we have also been hit by Covid and had to close for a period of time for the safety of our staff and customers. But we are glad we could still do our part to show our appreciation.
