A Welwyn Hatfield police officer teamed up with a local pub over the Christmas period to ensure that frontline NHS Staff were able to enjoy a Christmas dinner.
PC Paddy Phelan, from the Welwyn Hatfield Community Safety Unit, wanted to show his thanks to all those who have been working hard at the Lister Hospital throughout the pandemic.
The officer teamed up with landlady Marian and her husband, Nick, from the Chequers Inn who cooked more than a dozen roast dinners, free of charge, for the hardworking NHS staff.
PC Phelan then delivered the meals to staff who were working in A&E and the children’s ward on Christmas Day.
PC Phelan said:
“Those working in the NHS have been true heroes, and I wanted to say a big thank you to all of them.
“They were all very grateful to receive the Christmas dinners, and I’m glad we were able to bring some festive cheer to them at such a trying time.
“They do an outstanding job.”
