Cotswold catering company offers services during coronavirus crisis and says it's 'here to help'

A Gloucestershire-based outdoor events catering company have offered to donate their staff and facilities to companies and organisations struggling in light of the Coronavirus Crisis.

Relish Events had been preparing for a busy summer of events that included the Royal International Air Tattoo and Badminton Horse Trials - both of which have been cancelled.

The Cirencester-based firm have also had to close several of the cafes it operates due to the government guidelines on social distancing.

That has meant a number of Relish staff are currently out of work, directors Phillipa Sawyer and Rob Goves are keen to do their bit for the community.

With expert and skilled staff on their books and with a fully-equipped production kitchen ready and willing to work, the firm have made it known they are "here to help."

"We have teams of chefs and staff that could work in the private or public sector," Rob Goves explained.

"Care homes, retirement villages, the NHS and other care charities and companies may be swamped."

Philippa Sawyer said: "Relish have a production kitchen that could be of use to someone right now.

"We are here to help. We have worked with so many great suppliers and people over the years we are sure we can do our bit for the community, the region and the country at this difficult time."

For more information please contact Relish Event Catering on 01285 658444 or email info@relishmail.co.uk.
