A fundraising page has been set up so that the local community in West Norfolk and surrounding areas can continue to show their support for The Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn in its fight against COVID-19.
The QEH COVID-19 Support page has been set up on the JustGiving website so the community served by the hospital can continue its fantastic support for patients and staff. The money raised will help provide extra things as needs arise which will support patients, and boost staff morale during these difficult times.
Professor Steve Barnett, QEH Chairman, said: “The local community have been fantastic and the donations in kind we have received have proved invaluable for our staff who are going above and beyond to care for the increasing number of patients affected by COVID-19 and to keep everyone safe.
“The public and local businesses have really rallied round to provide food and other supplies for our staff who are working incredibly hard to deliver the best care for patients, in challenging circumstances. We greatly appreciate the support we are receiving. Thank you.”
Deliveries have included fruits, bags of potatoes, fresh milk, cakes, soft drinks, water and snacks as well as toiletries for personal care packages.
In addition, there have also been offers of free accommodation for front line staff.
The Trust is aiming to raise £5,000 through the JustGiving page, which can be accessed at https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/qehcovid19support
