More than 80 fish cake, sausage or halloumi and chips lunches were donated by the Traditional Fish and Chip Shop in Fareham, to staff based across the Fareham Community Hospital, as well as the staff and volunteers at the vaccination centre, in appreciation of all their hard work during the pandemic.

The lunchtime delivery on 3 March was organised by our Tenant Liaison Manager, Lee Williams who said: “Plenty of hard work went into pulling this off from Rebecca and her team at the chip shop.  All the teams here really appreciated the lunch, it went down a treat. We can’t thank you enough!”

Rebecca Traynor, owner of the Traditional Fish and Chip Shop, Fareham said “The chip shop team wanted to thank everyone working at Fareham Community Hospital, who have worked so hard during the pandemic.  We hope it helped staff morale.”
