About Us

With the help of our supporters, we feed the heroes on the NHS frontline. While the public plays their part by staying home, they can donate towards nourishing, well-made meals delivered directly to on-shift hospital staff. Let's take care of the people taking care of us. 

What we do
We are getting healthy, freshly prepared meals to NHS staff when they need it most. With many cafés, restaurants, and caterers being forced to close their doors, the DeliverAid team saw a way to support struggling food businesses, allowing them to remain active and leverage their skill and supply chains. The nourishing food they prepare goes directly to frontline heroes – the receptionists, ambulance drivers, cleaners, nurses and doctors who are working so hard on all of our behalf.


How it began
In response to the unprecedented challenges of COVID-19, London-based A&E doctor Jack Manley launched DeliverAid - raising public donations to feed our frontline NHS heroes as they put their lives on the line to protect ours. Less than 24 hours after being drafted into the fight against Coronavirus, Jack was flooded by offers of home-cooked meals, food deliveries and offers of accommodation nearer his hospital from generous family and friends. Recognising this willingness to help, he wanted to find a way to harness and direct this kindness towards a wider effort.

Who we are
Jack founded DeliverAid with his partner, Charlotte Butter, along with a small but dedicated DeliverAid HQ team that includes Aled John, William Akman and Clare Aitken. Creative technology agency Rehab, led by Rob Bennett, have generously lent us their considerable skill and energy to create DeliverAid’s fundraising platform.
Jack Manley
Jack has been working across busy A&E departments for several years as a junior doctor. His commitment to helping people and love of good food found a natural, if unexpected, outlet when Coronavirus broke out, and DeliverAid was born.
Charlotte Butter
Charlotte has international experience across PR, marketing and events. She has been instrumental in transforming DeliverAid from a late night conversation into a living, breathing, press-attention-getting reality.
Aled John
Having started out in broadcast media, Aled now designs and builds digital businesses for Condé Nast. He holds an MBA from Cambridge University and lends his entrepreneurial brain to DeliverAid's strategy and ops.
William Akman
William is a corporate lawyer at international law firm Morrison & Foerster LLP. William has first-hand knowledge of the hospitality industry and is dedicated to charitable work, frequently advising charities and non-profit institutions on a wide range of matters.
Clare Aitken
For the best part of two decades, Clare has worked to develop smart strategy and engaging editorial for brands with vision – which now, happily, includes DeliverAid.
