NHS Charities Together and Starbucks Christmas partnership
The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital Charitable Fund are excited to announce that NHS Charities Together has received additional funds from Starbucks, meaning that we received £2,000 to support our ongoing response to the COVID-19 crisis.
This winter, NHS Charities Together joined forces with Starbucks, to help raise awareness of the amazing work being done by NHS charities and to highlight the many difficult challenges faced by staff, volunteers and patients, as the NHS cares for more patients due to COVID-19.
With partners (employees), coffee, and customers at Starbucks’ core, they are working closely to find new and ongoing ways to support their communities, including pairing up with individual NHS charities on the ground by connecting with their teams locally. The ambition is for those local teams to provide direct support in as many ways as they can, from local employee fundraising, to providing space, to increasing connections between their customers and their local NHS charity.
The ROH has been successful in applying for a further £33,000 from NHS Charities Together to support staff wellbeing as well as £2,100 from Starbucks (£35,100 in total).
It is hoped the funding will be used to, amongst other things, support a Staff Wellbeing Space in our Nurses Home, additional mental health support for staff and an outdoor space for staff members to utilise.
