Northamptonshire Developer Provides 150 Meals For NHS Workers With Charity Donation

As the frontline NHS staff continue to work tirelessly against Covid-19, a Northamptonshire-based developer has supported a charity working to feed NHS workers during the pandemic.

Barratt and David Wilson Homes South Midlands, whose head office is in Northampton, donated £1,000 to Meals for the NHS to aid their mission to give decent and wholesome meals to staff across UK hospitals.

All donations given to the charity go directly to funding the meals and this donation is being used to provide a total of 150 meals at times when NHS workers need them the most.

This donation comes as part of the developer’s Community Fund scheme, which sees it donate up to £1,000 to a charity or organisation each month.

The charity pledged to deliver to hospitals outside of normal working hours after discovering hospital canteens close at 5pm, vending machines are turned off for health and safety reasons and PPE restricts staff from quickly popping out to get food in breaks due to how long it takes to undress and re-gown.

Recently, they have raised over £1.7m, delivered over 200,000 meals to 61 cities across the country and given a crucial lifeline to over 213 small and independent restaurants who otherwise might have closed.

John Dillon, Managing Director at Barratt and David Wilson South Midlands, said:

“We recognise that whilst these are unprecedented times, support from businesses like ourselves are vital to keep our key workers healthy and well looked after.

“The work Meals for the NHS do is beyond admirable and we are so pleased to have been able to support their mission with a donation.

“We would like to thank all of our frontline NHS workers for their tireless effort during the pandemic.”
