An Indian restaurant has donated £7000 worth of snacks and drinks to a Glasgow hospital to help fuel staff through the Covid-19 pandemic.

Every ward in the main Queen Elizabeth University Hospital (QEUH) campus has now been stocked up with crisps, sweets and juice for staff to enjoy on their breaks.

Turban Tandoori – in Giffnock, East Renfrewshire –  delivered 16 pallets worth of goodies last weekend.

Additional stock was also delivered to NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde’s New Victoria Hospital and Gartnavel General Hospital.

The health board said Turban Tandoori helped out during the first wave of the pandemic, donating £2270 to the QEUH.

The money was used to set up R&R hubs, which continue to provide a dedicated space for staff to relax on their breaks.

Morag Gardner, chief nurse for NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde’s south sector, said: “On behalf of all our the staff at QEUH, we’d like to thank the Turban Tandoori for their kind donation.

“The QEUH is privileged to have such compassionate businesses in the local community who recognise the intense pressure our frontline staff are under and who want to help out in any way they can. 

“Gestures like these go a long way to helping raise morale and remind staff that we’re all in this together.

“Again, our thanks go out to any business, individual or organisation which has volunteered or donated or supported the QEUH. 

“The community’s response has been immense and is testament to the spirit of Greater Glasgow and Clyde.”
