The food chain LEON has served nearly 14,000 half-priced meals to NHS staff in the past week, it has announced.
Along with a range of other businesses, LEON has decided to offer a discount on its products to NHS staff on the front line of the coronavirus pandemic.
LEON, which usually operates as a fast food restaurant, has set up as a takeaway and delivery service after the government instructed people to avoid public places.
In a statement earlier today, the company said that, in the past week, thousands of NHS staff had bought a total of 13,843 discounted meals.
All LEON staff have also been given the choice whether to work or not, and all those who choose to stay at home are being provided support through the government’s furlough scheme.
They said these decisions aren’t financial, but are instead based on a desire to help NHS staff. Indeed, the outlet has said that even if they do “by some strange accident” make a profit during this period, all of it will be spent feeding hospital teams.
