Restaurant has provided over 700 free meals during pandemic

AN Indian restaurant in a Staffordshire Moorlands village has delivered more than 700 free meals to nursing homes, hospitals and isolated individuals during the coronavirus pandemic.

Staff from Roshni, in Cheadle Road, Forsbrook have been determined to help as many people as possible during lockdown.

Owner Muhammed Sami and head chef Muhammed Ali ('Ali'), have cooked hundreds of portions of the restaurant's favourite curries accompanied with nan breads and rice.

Ali said: "We started by donating meals to the Royal Stoke [University Hospital] but then realised we wanted to do more.

"We have visited seven or eight care homes as well as surgeries. We've donated more than 700 meals free of charge.

"A lot of [hospital and care] staff are working over and doing extra hours so they may not have time to cook themselves a proper meal themselves."

The restaurant recently reopened to provide a meal a delivery and collection service and is trading six days a week from Tuesday to Sunday. Tel. 01782 388328.
