Tom Kerridge visited two Bucks hospitals this week to feed their staff members as part of his Meals for Marlow scheme.

The chef, along with Andy Agar and Chris Hughes who help set up the charity, met workers at Stoke Mandeville Hospital and Wycombe Hospital where they delivered the initiative’s 50,000th meal.

Tom, who lives in Marlow, personally served Debra, a nurse from the stroke unit at Wycombe Hospital, the 50,000th meal.

Trust Chief Executive Neil Macdonald said: “Meals from Marlow is a great initiative and a wonderful example of a community pulling together to support a cause and those in need.

"I’d like to say thank you to the team on behalf of everyone at Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust.

"These meals have made such a difference to staff who are working long hours caring for some of our sickest patients.”

Tom then added: "“We set up the initiative as the three of us wanted to support frontline NHS staff working in local hospitals during the pandemic and those in need within the community surrounding Marlow.

"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.”

The Meals for Marlow project has so far raised over £175,000.
