Exceptional times. Exceptional people.
The current situation makes you focus on what really matters in life. For me, the health and well-being of my family is far and away the most import consideration - and for that we owe a huge debt of gratitude to the NHS.
We've been scratching our heads at Pondicherry, thinking of ways to show our thanks and support our local community during these troubling times.
There are two groups of people that we think really deserve our support:
- The hardworking teams at local hospitals (many of our customers are doctors, nurses and healthcare workers and we know what sacrifices they are making at the moment).
- Our loyal customers
.... and we have developed a three stage plan which means that during the current situation you can help us to support our local health workers.
I hope you will be inspired to help us.
We are launching a "share and care" takeaway service every THURSDAY, FRIDAY and SATURDAY during the current crisis.
We will only have one chef (to ensure that we maintain social distancing even in the kitchen) and will carefully manage the purchasing of ingredients to avoid waste, so on each day only one or two of our most popular curries will be available:
These are available at £10 per portion.
Available for collection 5.30 til 8.30pm (Thursday - Saturday)
You must order by phone in advance: Our order line is open 24/7 just remember to leave a message confirming your name, telephone number, number of meals and date of collection - we'll call you back to agree a collection time.
Pay by credit card on collection or have the correct amount in cash (no change will be given).
Only one person will be allowed in the collection area at any time.
Download our Pondi APP before you collect your meal and we will give you a loyalty stamp for every £20 you spend (which can be redeemed once our restaurant is open again) and we will donate a meal towards our "thank you" initiative.
WE'RE DELIVERING FREE MEALS TO DOCTORS AND NURSES TO SAY "THANK YOU"
We have teamed up with our friends at Zooma Restaurant in Compton and arranged with The Princess Royal Hospital Telford and Russells Hall Hospital in Dudley to deliver complimentary currys to the hard working doctors and nurses at those hospitals. It's our way of saying "thank you" for the hard work and the sacrifices that they are making.
YOUR CHANCE TO SAY "THANK YOU" TOO!
As we have explained, every time you buy a takeaway from Pondi and show us your Pondi APP, we'll donate a meal towards our "thank you" initiative, but if you want to say an extra "thank you" to our wonderful NHS staff, we have set up a "Gofundme"" page https://www.gofundme.com/f/ndr2nm-meals-for-emergency-services-amp-key-workers
Make a donation today and every penny will be spent on creating another meal to say thank you to our NHS staff.
PLUS, make a donation, enter your email address and we'll enter you in a free prize draw to win a meal for 4 at Pondi when our restaurant reopens
