Hi Speed Services raises thousands for ‘survival packs’ for NHS Frimley staff

Aldershot-based TPN Member Hi Speed Services has raised over £22,000 to provide 1,000 ‘survival packs’ for staff at NHS Frimley Park hospital.

Team members shared the campaign on social media and by word of mouth and the donations poured into its JustGiving page.

The first £20,000 of the money was spent on huge quantities of groceries, including energy bars, drinks, personal hygiene products and toiletries and fresh fruit to allow staff to freshen up and have a snack during shifts. Shift patterns can mean it’s harder for NHS staff to shop – and many do not want to return to their families without first being able to wash and change for fear of spreading infection.

“We bought such a large quantity of goods for them, we ended up collecting whole cages  of groceries from Farnborough Asda in our own vehicles and delivering straight to the hospital,” says Hi Speed Services MD Ian Dawkins.

A team of Hi-speed staff and volunteers were on hand to unload into the hospital premises, and internal teams organised the distribution of the welfare packs amongst staff.

“The NHS teams are working very hard under very challenging conditions,” says Jamie. “We hope the welfare packs made their shifts that little bit easier and more comfortable.”

If anyone would like to contribute, the fund remains open, and the remaining money will be donated to the Frimley Park Covid-19 Appeal.
