JJ Foodservice has donated 4800 veggie fish fingers, 425kgs of chips and 47kgs of mushy peas to the Cystic Fibrosis Ward of St James’ NHS Hospital in Leeds.
Following the closure of many schools, the business redeployed its tasty supplies to the ward, which accommodates more than 400 adults.
Patricia Kilpatrick, Director of Cystic Fibrosis (CF) Care in the UK said, “It was a relief to hear that a food company like JJ Foodservices could offer vulnerable CF patients who have to self-isolate for 12 weeks during the Covid-19 lockdown a next-day free delivery service to their door. Now the donation to the CF Unit at St James’s in Leeds for patients on the ward is fantastic. On behalf of the CF community we would like to say a very big thank you for the service you are offering and your very kind generosity during these difficult times.”
Sedat Kaan Hendekli, Head of Operations at JJ Foodservice said, “Senior Charge Nurse Jason Swarbrooke (pictured left) and his team on the Unit are doing an incredible job under challenging circumstances. We were pleased we were able to do something small to help.”
JJ Foodservice has been listed as an ‘alternative supplier’ on the Cystic Fibrosis Trust website. The company offers a contact-free next day home delivery service for orders placed by 9pm across 11 UK branches including to shielding and vulnerable customers.
