During this difficult time of the corona virus pandemic, with all NHS staff under huge pressure, the League is continuing to provide support to our much-loved hospital, its staff and the surrounding community.
After discussions with Hounslow and Richmond Community Healthcare NHS Trust on how we can best help, the League are now funding a seven day a week food delivery service to staff at Teddington Memorial Hospital and also to the team at Whitton Corner Health and Social Care Centre.
The Trustees have agreed to an emergency fund of £17,900 which will cover the cost of food deliveries for up to eight weeks and we will also be launching a fundraising appeal so that our members and others in our local community can contribute too.
Our primary aim is to support the health staff who are on the frontline fighting corona virus and we also wanted to help our local community. Therefore, we are delighted to partner with local businesses to provide fresh and nutritious food. Ruba Restaurant, Sidra Restaurant, and The Abercorn Arms have all kindly offered to supply the food and arrange deliveries to the hospital and health centre.
This enables the League not only to support our healthcare teams, but also extend our support to local community businesses, as they cope with economic impact of the pandemic.
The League is only able to fund these daily food deliveries because of the generous donations that we have already received from the local community.
If you or anyone you know would like to donate to this project and our future projects, please follow the link below which enables you to donate via Debit/Credit Card, PayPal or donations form.
The League are extremely grateful for all the support which we receive from our local community and would not be able to achieve all that we have to date without it.
