The large reception they had planned for 120 guests was canceled. However, the caterer had already purchased the food.

The roast beef, canapes and hog roast had to go somewhere. The caterer asked the couple if they would be willing to donate it.

They said yes.

A charity group, Hull4Heroes, helped serve the food over the weekend to grateful health care staff.

"We’re just happy to help bring a bit of light in the middle of all this. It is times such as these when you realize what’s important,” Fiona Gordon told The Birmingham Mail. “The fact that we managed to help in some way because of this is a silver lining.”
