In a time of quite extraordinary circumstances and uncertainty, there is a steady stream of good news about communities helping each other in times of need. Whether it’s just neighbours checking in on each other or getting shopping supplies for those less able, every little bit helps.
Chester Racecourse is of course closed, but the kitchens are preparing and offering free frozen meals to frontline NHS and emergency services workers dealing directly with the coronavirus crisis, reports the Chester Standard.
The meals can be collected from the racecourse from Wednesday, 25 March, with their NHS or emergency services ID. They can choose from a menu that includes lasagne, shepherd’s pie, Thai vegetable curry, fish pie and Mediterranean pesto chicken, all ready to pop in the oven or microwave when they get home.
Chief Executive of Chester Race Company, Richard Thomas, said: “From Wednesday we will be offering NHS workers and emergency services staff a complimentary meal collection service from the racecourse. This is our opportunity to give something back to those on the front line doing a fantastic job to support individuals impacted by the developing COVID-19 crisis.”
To help with raising funds towards the production of these meals, a Just Giving page has been set up for donations.
Chris Matheson, MP for Chester, said: “Once again this is Chester Racecourse at the heart of the city’s community. The races will be badly affected by the Coronavirus pandemic, but that isn’t stopping the Race Company from getting stuck in to help and I am really grateful to them.”
