A KEBAB shop shipped dozens of doners to NHS staff to keep them fed on the front line against coronavirus.

Murat Akin, owner of AA Charcoal Grill in Brighton’s Lewes Road, donated 60 meals – from shish kebabs to vegan wraps – to staff at the city’s Royal Sussex

County Hospital on Thursday.

Murat, who has owned the business for six years, said he wanted to show “appreciation for the incredible job all NHS staff are doing as they fight the coronavirus pandemic”.

He said: “I took NHS staff at the Royal Sussex the 60 meals as a thank you for all the hard work they are doing.

“They work really hard.

“I thought they deserved a decent meal to say thank you.”

Murat is also giving NHS workers a 20 per cent discount on food from the kebab shop, and extended the offer to anyone who works in the emergency services.

Addressing NHS staff, he said: “Keep up the great work you are doing.

“It is appreciated more than you know.”
