A TEAM of Indian chefs have been helping to feed NHS staff during the current coronavirus situation. Staff from Roshni Restaurant in Forsbrook visited the Royal Stoke University Hospital last Wednesday (March 25) armed with around 100 curries for NHS workers to enjoy. Restaurant owner Muhammed Sami told the Times & Echo: “I just wanted to do something for the hard working NHS staff.
“It’s about everybody pulling together. We are in a very severe situation and we have to be serious about it.
“I have also distributed meals to local villagers.”
Although Muhammed, who employs seven people at Roshni, has had to shut down his restaurant and takeaway operations at his Cheadle Road establishment due to the coronavirus outbreak, he said he is going to continue to help feed people in his community and will also serve up meals to NHS workers again.
He said: “Yes I will do it again. This community has supported us for the past 21 years and so I am proud and pleased that I can do something to help.
“It’s not a big help but at least I can do something.”
