The boss of a Nepalese restaurant who has delivered over 100,000 free meals to frontline staff during the Covid-19 pandemic became a Freeman of the City of London at a ceremony.

At the outset of the pandemic Sujan Katuwal thought of closing the business that he had been running for more than a decade.

But his wife, Bandana, suggested that they keep it open to help the community and hospitals.

The couple subsequently delivered meals to hospital staff, community centres, homeless projects, care homes and armed forces helping out at vaccination centres. They include his signature dish “Mum’s Curry”, a medium hot chicken dish inspired by his mother.

The couple received the Queen’s Award for voluntary service in 2020.
