#Communityheroes: Atique Choudhury owner of Yum Yum A Thai Restaurant feed the NHS

British Asia News By Jalpesh Thakrar

London April 14 (JT/BAN) As we face unprecedented times across the globe we do see a lot of good and the bringing together of community and good will.

Atique Choudhury is one such example and the owner of Yum Yum a Thai Resturant in Stoke Newington #communityheroes. Whilst the resturant business is one of the worst hit in the industry along with the travel industry this did not deter his need to help.

His resturant maybe closed but they are helping the frontline doctors & nurses by delivering food to North Middlesex, Royal London and Homerton hospital. On the first visit as Atique approached their local hospital with their first delivery of free meals they were cheered & have since increased there order from an initial 50 meals on a Tuesday to 80 meals on a Tuesday and Friday. It’s people like Atique and his team from Yum Yum a Thai who we call coin #communityheroes.

British Asia News speak to Atique who said “We are very happy that our award winning dishes can be enjoyed by the most important people who are saving the lives of our local community. We have teamed up with a charity Hackney 215 who have used their contacts to support the service. These are times were we have to work with our neighbours to get through this very difficult period” he added “stay safe”.

As many of us are self isolating it is good to know there are people and businesses utilising their resources at their own expense voluntarily to help others these are #communityheroes. Specifically supporting our frontline NHS staff, doctors and nurses during this challenging global crisis they need our support more than anything. We will never know when we or our families might need them the most.

So a thank you from British Asia News also for the great efforts made and a thank you to all our front line staff for doing a great job during this time #community heroes.
