On Tuesday evening, the Park House made 50 dishes for healthcare workers and is planning to keep doing so every week during the crisis, as healthcare staff come under increasing pressure.

Aranya Corrigan, who co-runs the restaurant, said that she believed the food would help give the hospital workers a much needed boost.

‘The nurses and doctors are working in the hospital all the time and some are having to stay in hotels,’ she said.

‘They can’t get out and they need some different food, so we have made some hot and spicy food to give them some energy.

‘We will keep doing this for them, that’s no problem. We are here for them. We do the same thing in Thailand – make food for the hospitals.’

The dishes were delivered to the hospital by Islander Fraser McInnes, who is a regular customer at the Park House.

‘I was telling Aranya about all the support that is being given to the NHS at this time,’ he said.

‘She said to me that she would love to do that for local health workers in Jersey. I knew someone at the Hospital and they wanted to do it. I think it’s a really nice gesture at this time. It’s true altruism.’
