The Fourways, in Portway Hill, had to suspend their takeaway and delivery service last month due to a change in Government guidelines during the lockdown.

But the staff instead decided to focus their attention to supporting staff working at hospitals across the region.

For the last week-and-a-half, they have been cooking up different vegetarian and non-vegetarian Indian food and driving miles across West Midlands to deliver them.

Over the last 11 days, Fourways has delivered to Russells Hall Hospital, Sandwell General Hospital, Rowley Regis Hospital, Queen Elizabeth Hospital and the Birmingham Children's Hospital. They have also donated food to Sandwell Council staff offering support at Tipton Sports Academy.

Amrik Saini, owner of Fourways, said: "We have been making and delivering food to all the local hospitals. They are working so hard during this period, so we are proving them with hot meals.

"We have been doing it everyday and Thursday was our 11th day of doing this. We have been to Russells Hall, Rowley Regis, Sandwell, Queen Elizabeth and Birmingham Children's hospitals.

"The NHS staff in our hospitals are working so hard at the moment, I wanted to do something to look after them as they are working hard for us.

"We will carry on doing this for as long as we possibly can.

"The staff at the hospitals are really happy when we take them the meals. We can't cover every hospital but we are trying our best to reach who we can."
