This Indian restaurant in East Didsbury is offering free meals for elderly residents self-isolating


An Indian restaurant in East Didsbury is reminding us why we love Manchester, with its offer to donate free meals to elderly people who are self-isolating.

In an act of pure generosity, Khandoker Didsbury shared a post on their Facebook page last night offering free meals to elderly people who find themselves in need whilst self-isolating.

They asked for people to “work together and help the most vulnerable” in these difficult times, adding that “the elderly who can’t go out and stock up and probably scared alone in self-isolation.”

So to do their bit, restaurant bosses have decided to offer out a generous portion of curry and a side of rice.

This can be collected from them directly and they’re welcoming friends, neighbours or family members of those self-isolating to come and collect on their behalf.

The response online to the generous offer was warmly welcomed on Facebook, with one user commenting:  “That is so good of you i wish more people were as kind as this xx”.

Another added: “That’s a very kind gesture… keep it up!!”.

If you know someone in self-isolation or someone at high risk that is practising social distancing who might benefit from this, please go into the restaurant and talk to a member of staff to arrange a meal for them.

The family-run restaurant has been serving the community its authentic Bangladeshi and Indian food since 1937. Find them at The Khandoker, Kingsway, East Didsbury, M20 5WY.
