Help Your NHS
Here to help you support
Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals since March 2020.
The needs of local hospitals are changing by the day during the coronavirus emergency.
At Help Your NHS we’re dedicated to Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals to find out what they need now. And we’re asking for your help through donations to make sure they get it.
What do we do?
Our aim is to match the generosity of the local community with the needs of our local hospital trust.
As Help Your NHS, we:
Are in regular contact with Ashford & St Peter’s Trust to find out what they need most urgently
Use your donations to tick off items from the hospital’s shopping lists by sourcing goods they need wherever we can find them
Talk to local businesses about supplying goods directly to the hospitals
Like to help but not sure how?
We’ve already delivered
food and drink items for NHS staff
items of Medical & Personal Protective Equipment
self care packages for NHS staff
Worked with Kellogg’s to create breakfast packs for staff
Received toiletries from GlaxoSmithKline to make packs for staff to use in the new self-isolating hospital showers
Accepted donations from local businesses and individuals to allow us to buy and deliver items such as contactless thermometers and pulse oximeters as requested by the hospitals
Ashford and St. Peter’s Hospitals support the areas of Elmbridge, Runnymede, Spelthorne and Woking
