The owners of an Indian restaurant in Torquay decided to treat the Bay's key workers
Rehan Uddin and his father Nizam returned to Bombay Express with one mission - to give back to those that deserve and need help.
Since opening back at the Indian restaurant in Torquay three weeks ago they have fed 400 key workers in the Bombay20 challenge - 20 a day.
Teachers, doctors, care home workers charity organisers and volunteers experienced a moment of appreciation.
The 'Bombay Boys' set up a GoFundMe me page to feed vulnerable locals where £5 would provide a curry, rice and samosas contactlessly delivered direct to homes.
Rehan as a former Torquay Boys' Grammar School student received huge support from former class-mates.
The Bombay Boys have launched their Bombay box; a meal with eight items and a drink for £10. 'Times are tough and the least we can do is create something that helps those with a smaller budget access a luxury home dining experience,' they said.
