Feed Our NHS is a new initiative being set up by a local resident, to try and ensure that those working within the NHS during the Coronavirus outbreak can still have access to a meal.
As it says on their GoFundMe page;
We want to create a team which will try and support members of the NHS as they continue to work in hospitals across the country. We are hoping that if you see this appeal you will be able to spare even just a couple of pounds which we will use to try and get meals to health care staff who do not have the time to go and take lunch during their shifts. The money will used to pay restaurants or cafes who want to support this initiative and in turn hopefully will enable them to continue to employ their staff and remain operating during what is also an existential crisis for their industry.
The money raised will initially go towards sending food to hospitals in Wiltshire, Hampshire and London, with the hope being that the area covered will grow in due course.
Additionally if you or your organisation would be able to supply food to the hospitals, the team would be very interested in hearing from you.
These are some photos of recent deliveries the team have made;
Further details can be found on;
Their website - Feedournhs.org

You can also see a short video about their initiative on Youtube.
And stay tuned to Castledown FM as we will be mentioning them and following their progress on our shows over the next few weeks.
We would like to wish the team every success with their initiative.
