Chinese food venue i-KRAVE wins #WestsideHero award for NHS support

A popular Chinese food venue in Broadway Plaza has won the latest #WestsideHero award for feeding frontline NHS staff.

The modern takeaway has donated around 70 starters and main course meals to the staff at the Queen Elizabeth hospital to show their support and appreciation for staff fighting the COVID-19 virus.

George Zhao, general manager at i-KRAVE, said hospital staff had told him how tough it had been in the emergency wards in recent months and that the food treat gesture had “definitely lifted spirits”.

The committed team at i-KRAVE even put in extra time on the NHS deliveries to make sure they were properly packaged and labelled, with personalised cards on each meal to add a special personal touch.

Mr Zhao said: “We aim to continue with this NHS initiative with a second round of free meals once we have more staff back to assist.”

Mike Olley, general manager of Westside BID, said: “It’s been a pleasure to witness so many businesses donating food and showing their support for the NHS and other key workers.

“It has been an incredibly challenging time for many people however these random acts of kindness certainly go a long way.”

The latest #WestsideHero comes as i-KRAVE has reopened its doors to the public this week to offer a ‘click-and-collect’ service and delivery through Uber Eats.
