Hard-pressed staff at the Whittington Hospital in Archway were pleasantly surprised today despite their fight against the coronavirus – which one member of medical staff told us was “war-like”.

An anonymous benefactor had sent 20 Domino’s pizzas to the hospital for the intensive care and emergency department staff.

A hospital spokesperson said: “A lovely member of the public called us earlier and said he was sending us 20 pizzas as a thank you to our staff for all their hard work at the moment.”

This afternoon the Whittington Health NHS Trust tweeted: “A massive thank you to a local hero for sending 20 pizzas in to the hospital for our intensive care and emergency department colleagues to enjoy. These #RandomActsOfKindness are a real boost for our team!”
