Healthcare staff in the Black Country have been the beneficiaries of hundreds of free hot meals.

Chutney Indian Restaurant in Coseley is cooking around 200 meals a days and donating them to staff working in local care homes, other keyworks and also Russells Hall Hospital in Dudley

Staff from care homes and hospitals in Coseley, Dudley, Tipton and Wednesbury were sent a selection of curries, rice and other delicacies from Chutney Indian Restaurant.

The restaurant, which still operates a takeaway service from its base in Coseley, set up a delivery of more than 200 hot meals as a thank you to the different services.

Owner Jubel Ahmed said it was the least he could do to help support people.

He said: "We all need to come together during this pandemic and give something back as a thank you.

"I thought it was time to step up my game and give them something to look forward to as a local business giving back to the community."

The food deliveries were sent out to four care homes in Coseley, a home each in Brierley Hill, Tipton and Wednesbury and to three different departments at Russell's Hall Hospital.

The meals consisted of rice, a chicken and a vegetable biryani and a variety of sundries to go along with the meals.

Jubel spoke about what it meant to him to be able to give back to the community he had been part of for more than seven years.

He said: "It means so much to be to be able to give back to the community after they supported us through the good and bad times.

"It's only a small gesture, but it's nice to do something and see businesses come together and help everyone.

"It's all for the greater good and really helps people in need at this time."
