A FAMILY-RUN business in Salisbury has been giving free meals to NHS workers as a way of say thank you during Covid-19 crisis.

Saffron Indian Takeaway in Wilton Road is now offering free food delivery to NHS workers which will be delivered to Salisbury District Hospital every Saturday lunchtime.

Rowsonara Begum, of Saffron Indian Takeaway, said: “So many businesses are not being able to remain open at this time, we are so grateful that we can. We wanted to do our part to help others in need. Seeing our NHS workers working long hours and putting themselves at risk on a daily basis without even having the opportunity to refuel with hot food during their shifts spurred us into action. This is our way of saying thank you and to show how much we appreciate what they are doing day after day.”

She added: "We are also offering 20 per cent discount to any member of the NHS and a discount code has been provided for online ordering and for the emergency services, please contact us on 01722 238411 for more information. All we ask is that valid ID is to be provided for proof of purchase. We are ready to help.”
