The idea that came to me was to create pop up food distribution dedicated to NHS Staff on the premises of hospitals.
- They deserve direct access to necessary goods without the worry of visiting a mainstream supermarket to find the shelves empty.
- Any further exposure to public places was additional contamination risk we should help them avoid.
The staff of our NHS are at the frontline of this very modern war against the pandemic of Covid-19. Their combat necessities include ventilators, medicine, hospital beds, mops and buckets but nonetheless they are protecting and fighting for lives they may not be able to save. The least I felt I could try to help with was to make sure after a shattering day they had some access to food. It’s that simple.
Team-work has always been my thing and to put together an initiative like this takes a group of people focussed on the job in hand with egos aside.
Each day I am overwhelmingly humbled by the outpouring of support that has come forward to make my idea a reality. This continues to build each day so we can make a difference to Help NHS Heroes.
