Pershore-based distributor, Sprint Group, has supported Caprice Holdings to provide thousands of cooked meals throughout the country.
Richard Caring, chairman of Caprice Holdings which owns and runs The Ivy chain of restaurants, sent his personal message of thanks to a number of organisations, including Sprint’s director Ross Ryan, after the distributor worked alongside Rational to support the charitable initiative.
Sprint Group, run by brothers Ross and Luke Ryan, is based in Pershore, Worcestershire. Spearheaded by The Ivy Collection; Birley, Caprice, Troia and Bill’s, aided by the Ryans’ generosity, the groups have come together to distribute thousands of meals for those in need. This week, 26,000 cooked meals will be provided across the UK and the group will deliver London hospitals with an additional 7,000 cold meals.
Caring, who runs The Caring Foundation, said: “Thank you! Thank you! I’m so very thankful and grateful to be associated with such amazing people. Stay safe and all very best wishes.”
Sprint Group recently announced that it had temporarily closed its office doors but would remain open for business to support key sectors like hospitals, schools, colleges and care homes nationwide.
The group is a specialist in design, projects and equipment for the foodservice, catering and hospitality industry and supply high performance commercial kitchen, bar, refrigeration and ventilation equipment to the NHS, schools and colleges nationwide, along with well-known eateries which have recently had to shut down due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
However, with the help of initiatives like those from Richard Caring and The Ivy Collection, Sprint Group has ensured that vital services and equipment are still available for key sectors across the UK including ambulance crews and NHS frontline staff.
Ross Ryan said: “We vowed to do everything possible to keep our services running to ensure that the key sectors fighting to keep our country running have what they need, and we have. It’s a pleasure to support Richard and the Caring Group with their initiative.
“We extend our offer to anyone in need of help with catering equipment to support amazing efforts like Richard’s, The Ivy Collection and The Caring Foundation. If you think Sprint Group can help, please let us know.”
