The Berkeley relaunches drive through for key workers

UK: From 9am-5pm every day of lockdown, The Berkeley London will be operating a drive through for front line essential workers serving tea, coffee and hot food.

During the last lockdown in England, the Belgravia-based luxury hotel rallied its staff to serve a range of refreshments to London’s key workers from 9am-11am.

Donations were made from the hotel’s suppliers, local neighbours, businesses and food halls.

In response to prime minister Boris Johnson placing England into a third national lockdown from Wednesday 6 January, general manager at The Berkeley Knut Wylde has regrouped the hotel team to reinstate the drive through and extend its operating hours.

Writing on LinkedIn, Wylde said: “Last lockdown we were overwhelmed and so grateful for so many incredible donations from neighbours, businesses, food halls and more. Should you or a friend wish to donate food, drinks or any other treats, we would be so grateful if you could contact us on before delivering to The Berkeley, so that we can ensure your generous offerings are getting to our heroes when they need it most.”
