Malmesbury’s Red Bull Inn has stepped in to support Heals of Malmesbury and its emergency ‘Meals’ on Wheels service.

The Red Bull on Bristol Road just outside Malmesbury, has replaced the 40 meals provided three times a week to vulnerable local residents previously donated by Malmesbury’s Waitrose Partners‎.

The service, which is now in its sixth week has delivered over 1,500 meals through its team of 12 volunteer drivers.

Heals chair of turstees, Gavin Grant said: "We are so grateful to Dave and Nicola Moody for their kindness.

“We heard the Red Bull were selling take away food and might be willing to help.

They have got off to a great start.

“Two of their three meals each week are hot, so we cut down the lengths of our delivery runs and use more volunteer drivers.”

Calcot Hotel & Spa in Tetbury, also continues to provide freshly prepared meals as part of the temporary Heals service.

The hotel has so far given more than 1,000 main courses and desserts, collected by volunteer drivers from Malmesbury’s Cartmell Community Minibus three times a week and brought to Malmesbury for distribution.
