We are nominated Manjit Kaur as a bfa HSBC Community Hero due to the support she provided to her local NHS keyworkers throughout the pandemic. Manjit and her family, who also support the Heritage Healthcare Solihull business, cooked and served meals to staff members of their local hospitals and care homes as well as to their staff members who support clients at home.
The family dished up over 500 meals in one weekend, delivering a meal of chickpea curry and rice to Birmingham Heartlands Hospital. The following weekend, they served 300 meals to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham to help keep the strength of the frontline workers supporting patients affected by COVID-19. The family also provided bottles of water to keep staff hydrated during an exhaustive work day.
Owning and running a home care service, Manjit knows the importance of the carers in the community. She took the opportunity to show her appreciation and say thank you for the keyworkers who have become key to fighting the virus. The amazing work Manjit and her family did during the UK lockdown even saw them featured on ‘BBC Midlands Today’ who shared their story to the wider Midlands community.
