An authentic Italian restaurant in Rickmansworth have done their bit in the current coronavirus crisis to help out NHS staff and other key workers by donating meals to hospitals, care homes and police workers.
Maurizio’s Restaurant was founded in 1999 and are a small family-run business and felt that in this current climate, they couldn’t just sit around and watch everything go on.
Maurizio’s daughter, Alessia Tatantello, said: “Here at Maurizio’s we have always strived to help the community and in the past have been recognised for our services in the form of both charitable donations and fundraisers alike.
“We really wanted to do something to help. Therefore, we have donated over 100 meals to Harefield Hospital, and another 50 meals to Croxley Care Home.
They have also donated meals to the Chalfont St Peter ambulance service and 40 meals to Rickmansworth Police Station.
The restaurant has also supported Sunny Days Children’s Charity and The British Heart Foundation in the past, but Alessia admits times are tough currently for the business.
She added: “It is very important that our customers know we are still here, but also know that we are doing what we can to help.”
