Getting Support to Frontline Staff

The generosity shows no sign of slowing this week, with the College community donating nine large crates of donations for the Epsom & Ewell Foodbank, enough goodies to make up over 20 ‘pamper hampers’, and a mouth-watering five crates of baked treats.

Special thanks to Epsom parent Angie Mitchell who is collecting donations from the College and distributing them to local NHS ITU teams.

Mrs Mitchell is part of a local group of families who have been looking to support the NHS ITU Teams for some time. She has said that the College’s contributions have been “like a shot in the arm” for that group.

As Mrs Mitchell explains, the College’s generosity shows nurses and doctors that they are valued and supported by the wider community. This supports what the local families that Mrs Mitchell works with are calling ‘Project Refresh’, which stands for Residents’ Efforts For Rewarding Every Super Hero.

In the fifth week of lockdown the generosity showed no signs of abating.

As we enter Half Term, and the vaccination effort throughout the UK picks up pace, parents and pupils have dug deep and shown their generosity. Among the highlights this week are an abundance of cakes, and baked treats, yet more indulgent hampers chock-full of pampering goodies, and an incredible effort from Mrs Oksanna Lee who made 40 meals for the nurses and doctors at Epsom General Hospital’s Orthopaedic Centre.
