The Hunstanton Round Table have donated £2500 to The Queen Elizabeth Hospital’s COVID-19 fund.
From 26 April to 10 May, the Round Table group pledged to double donations to the hospital’s JustGiving page up to the total of £2,500.
To qualify, donators had to add #RoundTableDoubleIt to their donation, with many of them leaving messages and wishes to hospital staff:
“#RoundTableDoubleIt No amount of money is enough for the amazing work you do! 10 years ago you saved my husband’s life – we will be eternally grateful.”
“#RoundTableDoubleIt Thank you for looking after me when I was in recently with COVID-19. I am now recovering at home. Thank you so much.”
A two-metre long cheque was presented to the hospital’s Deputy Chief Nurse, Edmund Tabay last week, bringing the end to a successful campaign launched by the group.
Edmund said: “Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for this amazing donation. We have been overwhelmed with the support and generosity of local organisations over the course of this pandemic, and will be using this money to continue to improve both our staff and patient experience.”
The Round Table are supporting the local Hunstanton, Heacham and surounding area community by helping over 70s in isolation with shopping, errands or as a listening ear.
The group are made up of 18-45 year olds and have been running in the seaside town for over 60 years.
