Community carers and the homeless are among those to be supported by businesses using funding delivered by the University of Kent during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Nadia Esi is a start-up business founded by Kent Business School student Nadia Simpson. The £500 grant received by Nadia Esi was used to produce and donate 100 hand sanitizers to community care companies.
Nadia, who is currently studying Accounting and Finance, said: “We should all applaud the work being done by our amazing key workers to care for high-risk elderly people during the pandemic. I am pleased Nadia Esi was able to support them during this time.”
Ambrette owner and chef, Dev Biswal, said: “We are together in supporting the amazing work being done at Catching Lives.”
The restaurant, which pivoted into home delivery during the lockdown, has also been working with the Porchlight charity.
