Lockdown has proved a challenging time for many small businesses.  And the catering industry has been just one of the many casualties of the pandemic.

We’ve had to put on our thinking caps to keep going and have developed new meal and food products to help us but we have also opened our kitchens to work with the local community.

We feel privileged to have been involved with local initiatives including ‘Feeding the NHS’, Mid Surrey Community Fridges, Community Coronavirus Care, and our own initiatives ‘Baking for the NHS’ and ‘Outreach Connect’.

Through this work we’ve been overwhelmed to see how many people give their time selflessly, generously and compassionately to help people who are vulnerable, at risk or simply struggling because of the effects of the pandemic.
The generosity of our ‘hidden’ heroes makes such a difference to people’s lives.


We wanted to recognise them, so the idea of the ‘You’re Amazing’ Award was born.
