Thank you. To all the health professionals around the world putting the health of others before their own, every single day. Over the past few days, some of our teams across the UK have donated goodie bags to these hard-working folks in hospitals as a small gesture of our appreciation. 💚 #TimeToCare Featured in the carousel: Staff from Clevedon Minor Injury Unit, Broadgreen Hospital, Newcastle’s Royal Victoria Infirmary and Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
The items being sent to NHS workers include soap, body lotions, face scrubs, and other sweet-smelling items from the extensive range the brand currently has on offer.
The initiative is aimed at helping to provide frontline medical staff find a few moments of relaxing respite during the long hours spent battling the coronavirus, and helping those who are suffering from the disease.
The ethical health and beauty brand are also donating an extra 100, 000 bars of soap and a further 100,000 tubes of hand cream, essential equipment to help make sure healthcare workers are not put in danger when treating those infected with the coronavirus, to the NHS’s temporary Nightingale hospitals.
