A Workington gym owner is donating meals to NHS staff, emergency services staff and key workers as a thank you for the work that they are doing.

Lee Butterworth, from Xtreme Fitness, at Dobies Business Park, Lillyhall, and gym member Steve Palmer both felt that the hard work of NHS staff should be rewarded. He said: "Steve will give £1,250 from a fund he set up for community causes and I will give £1,250 from a walk that we did just before the gym closed and we will continue to supply the meals until the money runs out."

NHS and emergency services staff should go to the gym's car park on Thursday from 12pm to 2pm and collect a bag of 10 meals. If any meals are left they will be offered to key workers on Friday, from 12pm to 2pm. There will be balanced meals available such as rice and chicken and chicken that can be steam cooked.
