Supporting the NHS by cooking delicious & nutritious meals.
Has had to close their kitchens while the country is on lockdown, but not before they were able to cook over 800 meals for the amazing NHS staff at St George’s Hospital and Royal Brompton Hospital. Ellie and her mum will be continuing to cook what they can from their kitchens to keep supplying healthy home cooked food for St George’s.

Whilst Scotland is on lockdown Feragaia are giving a free care pack to Scotland’s frontline drivers, whether it’s a neighbour driving an ambulance through the night or a family member providing hot meals for those in need. Each pack includes a 50cl bottle of Feragaia, Scotland’s first alcohol-free spirit, along with bottles of @cushiedoos tonic and @merchantsheart ginger ale to give this selfless hero a moment to enjoy and unwind with before having to head back out on the road again.
In response to the the growing situation around Covid-19, they have started to use their stills at The Chase Farm to produce alcohol which is then converted into hand sanitiser.
HR1 is a WHO approved formula hand sanitiser and over the next few weeks 30000 units will be donated to frontline medical professionals and key workers in their local Herefordshire & Worcestershire areas. They have also made it available to buy to our trade customers and on the Chase web-shop. They’ve also donated several tonnes of potatoes to local food banks!
To help bring joy to families in isolation, in the weeks before they closed they offered free spring bulbs for all children!
