Brothers from Bristol take sausage van to hospital to feed NHS staff for free
Three brothers from Bristol decided to put their takeaway food van to good use during the lockdown and handed out free sausage and bacon baps to hospital staff.
The Jolly Hog parked their van, nicknamed ‘Miss Piggy’, in the car park of Southmead Hospital.
The team would usually take their van to festivals like Glastonbury, but the lockdown has forced events around the country to be cancelled or postponed.
The brothers plan almost didn’t happen. When they first had the idea, they were without a generator to power the van, so posted an appeal online.
Thankfully, a man from Manchester answered their call and drove all the way to Bristol in the early hours to deliver a generator.
The food was certainly a hit with the hospital staff and the three brothers -Olly, Josh and Max – plan to head back to Southmead to put more smiles on the faces of those fighting coronavirus on the frontline.
