To the wonderful community of Barrington Primary School,
Thank you to you all for the generous donations of non-perishable food, treats and toiletries. As you will see from the photos attached (I promise there were smiles underneath those masks), the NHS staff at Addenbrookes were genuinely overwhelmed at your kindness.
All donations, including 23 gift bags of luxurious goodies from Sainsbury's, were given to well-deserved staff in the critical care staff, who were extremely excited at all of the goodies. It had really lifted their morale, which is exactly what is needed.
Thank you to Claire Stoneham for arranging a donation handover with Chief Nurse Lorraine (you can see her Tweet of thanks attached too) together with doctors and nurses from across the hospital.
Overall, they were all overwhelmed that we were thinking of them and impressed to hear of the children learning in school and taught remotely about positivity, hope and kindness in this time of great adversity.
Thank you to you all.
