We know a cup of hot (Go) Joe can work wonders to lift the spirits. So, we’ve been delighted to support the NHS Grampian Endowment Fund’s comfort box initiative, that’s providing treats, snacks and toiletries to NHS staff and patients during the current crisis.
We’ve donated 2,500 Lyons Go-Joe coffee bags for the 500 comfort boxes that are being created by the charity and its team of awesome staff and volunteers. They’re being delivered to hospitals, maternity wards and care homes across the Grampian region, including Aberdeen Royal Infirmary,
Royal Aberdeen Children’s Hospital and a raft of care homes.
It’s a small way to show our NHS heroes that we care about their wellbeing and to help keep them going, as they care for others during this difficult time.
The NHS Grampian Endowment Fund safeguards donations made by patients, families and users of health services in the Grampian region. All donations are used to ‘make a difference’ to the care of patients and families, including provision of advanced medical equipment, major disease research grants and extras to make hospital stays more comfortable for patients.
The charity has contributed a phenomenal £100,000 from the COVID-19 Support Fund for the comfort box campaign and is now providing iPads for patients and other care initiatives, as part of its ongoing response to the coronavirus crisis.
