As a contribution to help lift the morale of those in the NHS who are helping in every way to overcome this virus, Schwarzkopf Professional donated more than 18,000 units of hair care products.
Back at the beginning of April, the UK Beauty Care Professional team arranged donations of Schwarzkopf Professional products to four NHS hospitals in the UK and Ireland. University Hospital Coventry, Princess Royal Hospital Farnborough, Kings College Hospital London and St James Hospital Dublin all received thousands of hair care products as a small thank you for their incredible efforts.
Kings College London are helping to support staff and patients over two locations, with over 500 staff in ICU alone. Melissa Worman, Head of Communications at Kings College Hospital Charity, said: “We are so humbled by all the support we’ve received for our hospitals and our incredible NHS staff. It’s an undeniably challenging time for the NHS. Supporting staff has always been at the heart of what we do as a charity, and it’s our privilege now more than ever to be doing so through our Hospital Heroes Appeal.”
In Dublin, St. James Hospital have been working around the clock to support both their patients and their staff. The products donated by Schwarzkopf Professional have been used in care packages and gift bags. These care packages have not only been distributed to the frontline doctors and nurses, but also to catering and housekeeping staff, all of whom are playing their part as frontline support.
All NHS hospital charities are working incredibly hard to support their staff during these difficult and overwhelming times – although we are past the peak, the fight on the front line is still very much going strong.
