A group of local citizens have raised over £8,000 to pay for groceries to be delivered to the Trust during the Covid19 pandemic.
After seeing footage of NHS workers being faced with empty supermarket shelves after a long shift, the group decided to crowd fund and do what they can to make a difference.
Regular deliveries of fresh fruit and vegetables will be made to the hospitals over the next few weeks, or until the funds have been used.
Healthcare professionals will be able to access fruit during their shifts and will also be able to grab provisions at the end of their shift before they head home.
The Trust has also been supported by Waitrose, Nandos, TK Maxx, Tunsgate Quarter, LoveTasteCo, Lush, Guildford Spectrum, Watts Gallery, University of Surrey and the parents of the regional squad at Guildford swimming club.
Louise Hall, HR Director said: “These are extremely kind gestures from the local community and one that will make a huge positive difference to our staff in this difficult time. We really appreciate all of your generosity and community spirit. Thank you to everyone who has supported us.”
