Staff at Mecca Bingo continue to feed NHS front line workers at Chesterfield Royal Hospital

Employees at Mecca Bingo in Chesterfield have been helping out since March.

Staff at a local bingo hall have been providing hot meals for staff on Chesterfield's Covid-19 ward twice a day during the pandemic.

The Royal hospital says the food parcels delivered by the town's branch of mecca bingo have made a huge difference. 

General manager at Mecca Chesterfield Martin Webster told us they've been happy to help out;

"What we're doing compared to what the staff at the Royal are doing is nothing really.

"We're really thankful for what they've done during this pandemic.

"If we can help a handful of those people on a daily basis to just get something nice and warm to eat, then it gives us a sense that we've done something to help during this awful situation."

He also hopes they can continue to offer their services in future;

"When we open back up for normal business, we want to make sure that we're still a part of the community and help those who need it the most, as and when we can."
