THEY'VE got big hearts and even bigger mixing bowls.

The team at an Oxfordshire cookery school have put their talents to good use during the lockdown by sending devilishly delicious treats to the county's key workers.

The talented chefs at Maymessy, which is based in West Challow just outside Wantage, are now delivering snacks and treats to the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford, the children's hospital next door, and these firefighters at the station in Wantage.

Maymessy owner Anna Richards said: "We feel incredibly grateful to have the NHS and other key workers continuing to work hard and risking their lives to look after us all.

"We wanted to help support these amazing people in our own small way.

"The NHS staff have spent all this time away from their families in a hotel so they can self-isolate, making this incredibly difficult time even harder. I have received so many heart-warming comments about how our deliveries are helping to show our appreciation."

The packages contain treats and pampering products donated by local businesses such as Tesco, Waitrose, The Kats Whiskers, The Living Herb and The Hive.

One worker at Oxford Children's Hospital said: "It has certainly helped to keep the spirits up of staff and families."
