As a way of giving thanks to the NHS and key workers during this pandemic, the UKBCCI, headed by President Bajloor Rashid MBE, Chairman Iqbal Ahmed OBE and their fellow directors Mr Oli Khan, Mr Saiful Alam and Mr Siddiqur Rahman Joynal have been out and about this week supporting frontline staff and key workers with hundreds of free meals.
Following on from their visit to the Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospital in Chelsea, the UKBCCI called on Lambourn Grove Hospital, which is an elderly assessment unit, in St Albans, Hertfordshire. The sponsors who donated food were the Raj Garden in Bushey, Surma in Stevenage and the Prince of Bengal in Watford. Special thanks must go to the hardworking staff from these restaurants and takeaways in preparing and helping to deliver the food.
A similar story was occurring in Manchester, where the Vermillion restaurant, another UKBCCI sponsor for this initiative, have been providing free ’signature dishes’ at their neighbouring hospital, the North Manchester General. A tweet from the Vermillion restaurant said “We salute the heroes of our NHS who are making a huge contribution in this time of crisis.”
Dr M G Moula Miah, director and convenor of UKBCCI Midlands Region is also hard at work in the Midlands with the same initiative.
