“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.
