Wolverhampton restaurant supports community during Covid

19 February 2021

Pan-Asian noodle bar Chop and Wok in Wolverhampton has made a massive effort to support people who have been struggling through the pandemic this last year. The restaurant in Chapel Ash regularly donates freshly cooked meals to P3’s Wolverhampton Pathway service, with more than 20 meals each week going to people in supported housing in the city.

Now restaurant owner Saleem Deen is going one step further, running 5km every day this year to raise money for P3 and local charity The Haven, who support women and children affected by domestic violence.

Saleem said:

“As a new business owner, I wanted to do my part for the community and help those who really needed it. Wolverhampton has been hit hard by Covid-19 and I reached out to P3 as they provide help and support on a wide range of issues including, homelessness, mental health, addiction issues and so much more. Helping them with a small weekly food donation helps them to further affect positive change within the community especially during a pandemic.

“I hope the “5K Everyday Initiative” will raise more awareness and importantly more funding for critical community services that we often forget about or sometimes take for granted.”

P3 Head of Support and Community Services Sam Bailey said:

“We can’t thank Chop and Wok enough, we are so grateful for their kind donations. This weekly treat always puts a smile on people’s faces and helps the people we work alongside to know that others do care.

“Many of the people we work alongside don’t have the opportunity of a takeout, so the receipt of this kind donation really does make a difference to them.”
