Zaman’s, Indian restaurant in Newquay, has been busy making hundreds of delicious meals and delivering them to frontline workers, for free.

Over the past three weeks Eshan Miah (aka Mo) the owner and chef at Zaman's has cooked and delivered 1280 meals to frontline workers and people in isolation.

Mo moved to Cornwall from London three years ago and having received strong support from the locals, he wanted to give something back.

‘As well as a family of my own with two children I have put in 7 days a week and it makes me feel so good to give something back.'

'When I cook and deliver the food it makes me feel proud and I love to see the smiles'

Many people in the community, who have already benefited from one of the meals from Zaman's, have been loud with their thanks.

Mike Gough, lead paramedic from Newquay ambulance station, said ‘From all the staff at Newquay Ambulance Station and all front line ambulance staff across Cornwall we would like to say a massive thank you to the local community for the support you have shown us during these difficult times. We are incredibly grateful for the donations you have dropped off to stations or sent to us, we are all overwhelmed by the support you have shown. THANK YOU.

Lyn, the home manager at Hollybush Care Home, continued ‘It was so lovely to even offer. We had such a good day and it brought back a lot of memories for our residents having been through the war. Because the meals were already cooked and prepped, we as staff were able to sit down with all the residents and enjoy the food together like a party’
