We want to give “The Bedford Big Thank You” to all our hard working and dedicated NHS Staff at Bedford Hospital during this very challenging time. They are working day and night in the front-line caring for our family and friends whilst placing themselves at greater risk of catching the coronavirus. Whilst we clap our support each Thursday evening, we want to show even more support by providing our thanks in kind.
On your behalf, BHC&F have arranged for the delivery of 1,000 cakes to the hospital once each week and have placed a £25,000 order for 20 reclining chairs so that the staff can take a quiet moment to relax during their break time. We are providing daily fresh fruit, nutritional nut and fruit bars and individual bottles of water, whilst also asking the staff what else we can do to thank them. The charity has just donated £25,000 to improve the Wi-Fi around the hospital to improve general communication, eventually providing patients with access to Freeview and newspapers on-line via their tablets and mobile phones whilst also allowing staff to keep in touch with their loved ones.
