Raising Money for NHS Charities Together

This is the last day (1 April 2020) for us to raise £10,000 or more, as per below – please donate just £5 and forward this on to your contacts and ask them to donate if they can.

Whilst many of us are working in a safe environment at home, our amazing NHS staff and volunteers are working tirelessly to care for COVID-19 patients. And we want them to know that we are here for them. We are so proud and in awe of NHS staff and volunteers as they work tirelessly to save lives! This means staying away from their homes and families, working day and night, to treat as many people as possible in need of care.

As NHS staff and volunteers look after COVID-19 patients in their greatest hour of need, we can help take care of the well-being of our NHS people.

If we can donate just £5 each and then forward this message on to everyone in our contact lists who also donate £5, I am sure that together we can reach our target by 1st April 2020.

But we have only 5 days to raise £10,000 for the brave staff and volunteers at the NHS so please donate just £5 now! If by the 1st April we have not reached our target, I will make up the difference.

Donations can:

1) Fund well-being packs/gifts for staff and volunteers on wards/departments (this could include food deliveries, high energy/protein bars/drinks, snacks, refreshments, wash kits, overnight stay kits.)

2) Cost of travel, parking, accommodation for NHS staff and volunteers Volunteer expenses

3) Other items as requested by NHS Charities that enhance the well-being of NHS staff and volunteers caring for COVID-19 patients.

WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER. HELP THEM HELP US & CONTACT YOUR CONTACTS.

Coronavirus Information

In light of recent COVID-19 developments, we have taken the difficult decision to stop taking any further orders for the hire of mobility equipment with the exception of beds (see below).

Our suppliers make every effort to effectively clean all products before they are sent out again but nevertheless, we feel that it’s best to take a prudent approach and not re-use mobility equipment for the time being. 

The situation is obviously not ideal but we feel that this is necessary to ensure the safety of our service users, the community in general and staff throughout the handling process.  We will of course keep you updated with the situation and let you know once normal service can be resumed.

BEDS
One of our suppliers has assured us that during this difficult period, they are able to fulfil our demand for bed hire.  Prices include delivery, collection and decontamination.

Rent a wheelchair during the holidays

With the summer holidays approaching fast, many of us our scratching our heads thinking about what to do and where to go.  For anyone with a disability (or anyone caring for a disabled person), we also need to think about not only how to get to our destination but also get our wheelchair, hoist, mobility scooter etc there too.

Whilst public transport might be the cheapest way to get somewhere, it’s often not the most convenient – especially when we’re taking bulky mobility aids with us. Continue reading Rent a wheelchair during the holidays
