SHERWOODS SUPPORTING THE NHS

10 September 2020 | Sherwoods offered three demo vans to local pharmacies, key services and NHS organisations.

SHERWOODS SUPPORTING THE NHS

Sherwoods Motor Group has donated three vans to deliver personal protection (PPE) equipment to NHS workers, speed up the delivery of prescriptions to vulnerable people, and help collect food from supermarkets for a food bank. "It's brilliant to see them being used in our local communities!"

• One is being used by the Northumberland, Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust to deliver PPE equipment in Tyne and Wear

• Another has been loaned to County Durham-based Knights Pharmacy to deliver prescriptions to self-isolating or shielding patients

• The third is helping The Friends of Eastwoods Park, in Prudhoe, to supply a foodbank in Prudhoe.

Russ Greig, project manager at The Friends of Eastwoods Park said: "Since having the van we’ve now been able to redistribute over 6 tonnes of food which would otherwise have gone to landfill. Much of that is offered through our pay as you feel market where people make a donation, which helps us purchase items for our food bank and most recently we’ve also started a free meal service for elderly and vulnerable residents."

"We’re in our third week of doing that and have already increased from 80 meals in week 1 to 150 this week. We’ve also been really successful in securing a number of grants to provide ongoing support to those affected by the coronavirus facing food insecurity."

"Thank you so much to everyone at Sherwoods for their generosity."
