Tom Kerridge helps to raise £100K for NHS

Celebrity chef Tom Kerridge has helped raise £100,000 to fund free meals for frontline NHS workers during the Covid-19 pandemic through the Meals From Marlow initiative.

The campaign, backed by Kerridge, raised £100,000 in just 48 hours and included a £25,000 donation from local charity the Shanly Foundation.

The funds will pay for 600 meals a day for NHS staff and vulnerable citizens in the Buckinghamshire and Berkshire areas.

Kerridge has provided kitchen facilities to bring the project to life and has enlisted the help of fellow chefs in the Marlow area to cook the meals.

“I know the people of Marlow are a very generous group, but I’m astonished by the speed and the level of kindness.

“People realise that as well as looking after our own neighbours, the front line is in the big hospitals where NHS teams are doing astonishing work. Thank you Marlow, I’m proud of you,” Kerridge said.

Kerridge runs The Hand And Flowers in Marlow – the world’s only two Michelin-starred pub, and The Coach, which has one Michelin star. He also runs a London venture Kerridge’s Bar and Grill inside the Corinthia hotel in Westminster.

He is a regular on TV and most recently fronted the show Lose Weight and Get Fit With Tom Kerridge on BBC2.
