Over £300k Raised in 7 Days to Deliver Free Meals to NHS Workers

0

Over £300,000 has been raised in just 7 days, in order to deliver free meals to the NHS workers currently battling the coronavirus pandemic.

‘Meals for the NHS’ was set up a week ago and after Meto.co.uk urged people to support the campaign, over 4,000 meals have been delivered to hospitals and more are expected soon.

One of the founders, Andrew Muir Wood, said their friends in the NHS were not eating properly so they came up with a plan to help them.

Mr Muir Wood added: “It’s hard for anyone to operate on an empty stomach let alone people trying to save lives, so we got together trying to work out how we could solve that.”

A surgeon from a Covid-19 intensive care unit told the group on Monday: “At weekends, overnight and evenings there is virtually nothing to eat except a crap vending machine with crisps and chocolate. Seriously.”


Mr Muir Wood said: “It was a bit of a gamble at the start of the week but by Wednesday we had enough public support to cover the cost then it spiralled from there – it’s been crazy.”
