Grahame Gardner has joined forces with a leading charity to help raise as much money as possible for the NHS.
The company has created a brand new charitable Healthcare Heroes drawstring bag that people can buy with all profits made being donated to Leicester Hospitals Charity.
The bags, exclusively designed by the Grahame Gardner team, are intended to help keyworkers minimise infection control when they finish their shift, so they can quickly, easily and safely put in their dirty uniform at the end of the day to take home and wash, along with the bag.
All the money raised will go towards the Leicester Children’s Hospital Appeal to help fund the first dedicated single sited children’s hospital in Leicester.
Simon Ward, group sales director for Grahame Gardner, said: “We have a long history providing uniforms for the healthcare industry and are proud to be a contracted medical uniform provider to the NHS. Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, our team has been doing all they can to ensure a consistent and high-volume flow of medical workwear to the frontline and this has given us the opportunity to really see at first hand the incredible work of NHS professionals up and down the country. We continue to be amazed by the work they to do to help keep us safe.
“We felt really strongly that we wanted to do something to show our gratitude so have created our new ‘Healthcare Heroes’ drawstring bag that is not only useful for any healthcare worker to have, it will also help fundraise for the wonderful Leicester Hospitals Charity which is doing incredible work particularly at the moment with regard to enhancing children’s services within the city and across the East Midlands
“We are really keen to spread the word about the bag and encourage as many people as possible to buy them from our website, perhaps as gifts for their loved ones who work in the healthcare sector, so we can raise as much money as possible for the health service here in our hometown.”
Gareth Aston, head of fundraising at Leicester Hospitals Charity, added: “We are hugely grateful to Grahame Gardner for rallying around the hospitals at this time and for their support of our Appeal to help create the first dedicated single sited children’s hospital in Leicester. The support of local firms like this is essential for us to deliver this landmark project for Leicester and the future.”
