Chesham based catering company Global Infusion Group’s will deliver sweet treats to 250 keyworker's which the public can nominate online.

Global Infusion Group’s catering divisions GIG and Eat to the Beat are usually in action at venues, TV studios and event sites all over the world.

With theatres, arenas and convention centres closed and concerts, sporting events, festivals, conferences, live performances and filming on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic, the company has quickly adapted its operations to deliver catering to the NHS and other keyworker's on the frontline.

This Thursday, when the nation comes together to Clap for our Carers, ahead of the VE Day 75 celebrations on Friday May 8, the company’s Chesham headquarters will be lit up in the evening.

On Thursday blue lights will celebrate the NHS and on Friday they will be red, white and blue for the 75th anniversary of VE Day.

GIG and Eat to the Beat will also be distributing tasty treats to local residents on both Thursday and Friday.

People in Chesham have been asked to nominate 250 NHS staff, carers and keyworker's in the town to receive a large slice of Rainbow cake which will be delivered to their doors by a team of volunteers once the Clap for our Carers has come to an end.


On Friday, the team will deliver 100 cream teas to veterans in the area

Bonnie May, global operations director for GIG, said: “Having witnessed the efforts of our true superstars over the last six weeks we felt it was important to show our admiration and appreciation for all the incredible work being done by NHS staff, carers and keyworker's in the battle against coronavirus.

“The Light it Blue campaign has seen famous landmarks and venues up and down the country washed in blue on a Thursday evening, as a thank you to the NHS.

"We’ve got a large open space at our premises in Chesham, so we can bring together staff members and local residents whilst observing social distancing.

"With VE Day 75th celebrations massively scaled back due to the coronavirus crisis, we wanted to do something to mark the occasion and tremendous sacrifice of our veterans.

"Lighting up our building red, white and blue and delivering cream teas locally is a small gesture on our part which we hope will help spread some happiness in the community.”

Working together, GIG and Eat to the Beat have been catering for 15 NHS and key workers sites across Buckinghamshire.

This includes two hospitals, outreach sites and the IT department, delivering between five and 200 meals per day, Monday to Friday, with a top up on Fridays to ensure people have access to food across the weekend.
