A HUGE gesture of solidarity on the Costa Blanca saw 18 motorcyclists deliver more than 70 free pizzas to staff at Sant Joan Hospital in Alicante and several pharmacies this weekend.

But this is just the latest show of support from Pizza Express in El Campello and Mutxamel, which has been distributing the takeaway favourite to workers on the frontline since the nationwide State of Alarm was declared.

Employee Esteban García said: “We have distributed more than 1,000 free orders to the Local Police, Civil Protection, Guardia Civil and health centres in these municipalities.”

He added that each time they arrive at their destination, they are met with applause and cheers.

The company intends to continue to support those working around the clock to help fight the spread of coronavirus, “as long as the money holds out”.
