Northampton curry house donates food to homeless charities after Covid-19 lockdown

A curry house in Northampton has given all its food to homeless charities after the government closed all restaurants to limit the spread of Covid-19.

Saffron, on Castilian Street, took the decision to close on Wednesday night in the interests of staff and their families.

The restaurant previously offered half price meals to all NHS and emergency services staff as they dealt with the Covid-19 outbreak.

The restaurant has now donated all of their food to the Hope Centre and Northampton Night Shelter. They are also urging others to do the same.

Saffron received a handwritten personal letter from Andrew Lewer, the Conservative MP for Northampton South, thanking the restaurant for its efforts in supporting emergency services during the outbreak.
