Starbucks grant supports staff at Christmas 28 January 2021 A grant from Starbucks via NHS Charities Together has been used to support staff working in our hospitals at Christmas. Above & Beyond provided a gift card to each ward and department across all nine hospitals the charity supports, so that every member of staff received much-needed treats at Christmas. The gift cards were to say thank you to NHS staff for their hard work throughout 2020. Staff used their gift cards to purchase chocolates, hot drinks and even fluffy socks. Cathy Caple, Deputy Chair, Trust Services Divisional Management Board, said: “I am writing on behalf of the Trust Services Division to extend our thanks to everyone at Above & Beyond for generously providing all of our staff with a Christmas gift card. It has been received with great appreciation at the end of a challenging year for everyone in the Trust, and it is heartening that this is recognised and appreciated by our official hospitals charity. “We look forward to continuing our work with Above & Beyond into 2021.” Click here to find out more about supporting our hospitals with your business.
