Joy came in the form of chocolate at the Royal United Hospitals Bath today when an eggstra special donation was made – 5,000 Easter eggs have been delivered to the hospital to bring a little Easter joy and a much-needed boost for staff during this challenging time.
This generous donation was made by a company called gemsatwork which provides food products to workplaces. Christian Morris, Account Executive, gemsatwork said:
“We decided to donate the Easter eggs as we know how hard they are all working round the clock to keep us safe and this is our way to say thank you to them.”
The hospital’s charity, The Forever Friends Appeal is now working as quickly as they can to distribute the eggs to all staff before the Easter weekend.
Rhyannon Boyd, Head of Fundraising, The Forever Friends Appeal said:
“Thank you to everyone at gemsatwork for making this donation. Everyone who has received an egg has been delighted. We’d also like to thank all the other businesses who’ve donated to our hospital, whether it’s been packaged food, toiletries, flowers or refreshments – all of the items have been gratefully received.
“We’ve been overwhelmed by the incredible response from our community and we would also like to thank everyone who has donated to our hospital heroes’ appeal. The money raised is being used to provide staff with care packages as well as other urgent requests received from our wards and departments.”
