Helping the Community: What We’ve Been Doing

Helping the Community: What We’ve Been Doing

Before Christmas, we talked about how we had been doing our bit for the community and more specifically the NHS throughout last year. We were proud to be able to provide breakfast for the COVID-19 unit at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital. We also donated over 4,000 pairs of gloves. You can read more about what we did last year in our November blog.

We are really passionate about doing our bit where we can. Since November we have done even more to help out our local community. As we have mentioned before, we think having access to a good meal is essential, particularly when you are tired and stressed. We know that a lot of our keyworkers and NHS staff don’t have time to make sure that they are getting enough food, that’s why we wanted to help.

Breakfast For NHS Staff

On 23rd December 2020, we donated a breakfast morning to NHS paramedic and ambulance staff. We really wanted to thank them for their efforts throughout the year and for their continued commitment over the holiday period.

Donation to Local Vaccination Clinic

On New Year’s Eve we made a special delivery to the Covid vaccination clinic at Hucclecote Surgery. We donated lunches to all of the staff, including some of our best sandwiches complete with snacks. It’s safe to say they were all happily received.Selection of sandwiches and crisps donated to Hucclecote Surgery

Rosebank Health

We also donated lunch to Rosebank Surgery on 6th January. They have been working hard vaccinating patients against Covid-19 and we wanted to show them that they had the support of the community. It was also a great way to show our thanks for all that they have been doing throughout the pandemic.

We wanted to take some time to say thank you to all frontline workers and NHS staff. They have continued to help our country throughout these trying times. I’m sure that we will all be forever thankful for their dedication to helping their people. Especially throughout what has been a strenuous and unprecedented period in our history. We will continue to help out where we can, even if it’s just making sure that they have access to a good nutritious lunch!

Doing Our Bit For the NHS

Doing Our Bit For the NHS

This year has been a challenging year for businesses and individuals alike. But the organisation that has had to overcome the most amount of challenges is the NHS. Since the beginning of the first lockdown in March, it has seen surges of Coronavirus cases, with beds filling to max capacity at times. Shortages of PPE has caused even more stress, on top of longer hours for staff.

Despite all of these challenges, NHS staff have pulled together, worked as a team and I think we can all agree that they have been absolutely amazing and done our country proud.

We think having access to a good meal is essential, especially when you’re tired and under a tremendous amount of stress. That’s why, to say thank you and to help do our bit, we have remained open throughout lockdowns to serve the country’s frontline workers. This has included providing breakfast for the COVID-19 unit at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital, to make sure that they get themselves a well-balanced, tasty meal, even if they didn’t have time to go shopping between shifts.

We also wanted to help in other ways and are proud to say that we donated over 4,000 pairs of gloves to the hospital. As we have all been aware, there have been shortages in PPE equipment, and we wanted to make an effort to help keep our frontline workers safe.
