A Downham restaurant is cooking up meals for hospital staff after receiving community donations.

The Downham Tandoori restaurant has been requesting for £5 donations so they can send meals to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

This week, the High Street business will be sending dozens of meals to the QEH as part of its ‘Friday Night Appreciation Curry’ scheme.

So far this week, the restaurant has made more than 200 meals for the cause.

This comes after donating a final total of 120 meals last week.
