A little over two months ago now, when all of our lives were turned upside down seemingly overnight, we took the decision to channel our energy over the coming weeks ahead into helping our community in the best way that we know how, by supplying our food to the NHS and its frontline workers, who have and continue to work tirelessly and heroically so as to nurse our society through these dark times. 


With your incredibly touching support & generosity, we were able to raise just over a staggering £43,000, which has fuelled our initiative and enabled us to fulfil our main objective of feeding local hospitals through the peak of this pandemic. Over a 10-week period we have served close to 12,000 meals across 9 hospitals, plus various care homes and mental health facilities. Our food has made a very tangible difference to those it reached, and we have literally been inundated with heartfelt messages of thanks and gratitude from nurses, doctors, pharmacists, care workers & beyond. 


Now that it seems we are tentatively emerging out the other side of this crisis, and with our raised funds almost all but used up, we feel that the time has come to wind up Berber & You and redirect our efforts into waking up the sleeping beast by relaunching our restaurants. In the coming weeks and months ahead both Berber & Q Grill House and Berber & Q Shawarma Bar will be brought out of their current hibernation, with plans in place for pre-ordered packs of our food as well as offering both take-away and delivery service out of both sites. Please keep your eyes peeled to our social channels for further details. 


In the meantime, the first week of June will be our final week of drops to the NHS. It has been our honour to serve these institutions over the past months, and we will continue to support all NHS workers by offering them exclusive discounts on all of our offerings until the end of this year


We look forward to getting back to servicing the wider community with our food, and can’t wait to welcome you back into our world, in whatever form that may take for now. 


All the love,

Team Berber x
