Like all restaurants across the country, the Garden Cantonese Restaurant in Bangor closed its doors in March after the Welsh government ordered the closure of pubs, clubs and eateries in Wales to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
However, despite the difficulties facing many businesses during the lockdown, the award-winning family-run restaurant has donated over 200 meals to frontline staff at Ysbyty Gwynedd hospital, reports The Bangor Aye.
The Garden Cantonese Restaurant has been offering a takeaway and delivery service to customers but wanted to provide a service as a thank you to all the frontline NHS staff.
A spokesperson for the Garden Cantonese Restaurant said: “Although small, Bangor has a close-knit and good community. When the lockdown was announced, we wanted to help out the community as much as we could.
“Since lockdown, we have donated freshly cooked, hot meals to Ysbyty Gwynedd Hospital staff every Tuesday to Saturday. To date, we have delivered over 210 meals to feed our heroes
“We just want to say a massive thank you to all NHS staff who have continued working to keep us all safe and well. We are truly grateful for your help during this difficult and pressured time.
“And we couldn’t have done it without all the locals who have supported our family business through this difficult time and kept our kitchen open so that we can help the NHS. Thank you for your kind words of encouragement, positivity and praise – it has been the fuel to keep us going.”
The restaurant has also wanted to thank many the many people who generously donated supplies and their time so that they could continue to provide meals.
They singled out Fu’s Chinese restaurant who donated onions, cashew nuts, and eggs for their fried rice, and Nicholas Edmond from Booker Llandudno who kindly donated more eggs and hot food containers, and delivery drivers ‘Liv & Liam’ who delivered the hot food to the hospital.
