MFS and Benares provide over 5,500 free meals to support NHS staff and Emergency Service workers
More than 5,500 free meals have been donated to the NHS and Emergency Services as part of a joint initiative launched by Market Financial Solutions (MFS) and restaurant, Benares Mayfair.
The London-based bridging loan provider partnered with fine-dining Indian restaurant Benares to deliver freshly cooked, complimentary hot meals to NHS staff and Emergency Service workers across London.
MFS has been working in collaboration with Benares since 23 March, jointly donating funds to cover the costs of the meals. The Mayfair-based restaurant has been delivering daily takeaway food packages to NHS doctors and nurses treating Covid-19 patients.
The food packages have been delivered to Hammersmith, Charing Cross, Chelsea & Westminster and St Mary’s (Paddington) hospitals, as well as local NHS medical centres in Mayfair, Knightsbridge and Victoria. The initiative came to an end on 3rd July.
Tiba Raja, director of MFS, said: “Thanks to our partnership with Benares, I am extremely proud to announce that we have been able to provide over 5,500 hot meals to our amazing NHS frontline staff completely free of charge. Even at the height of the lockdown, MFS and Benares remained committed to delivering freshly cooked meals on a daily basis.
“This initiative is just one example of how businesses have stepped up to support the wider community in the fight against the pandemic. It’s been a hugely successful partnership and on behalf of the team at MFS, I would like to thank Benares for all their hard work and dedication. I look forward to seeing how we can work together in the future to support more charitable causes.”
