Hi guys!...my name is Gary and I am a hotelier in Blackpool. Like everybody else in the country the Covid19 virus continues to change and control our everyday lives.Now more than ever we must all come together and adhere to the advice from the government and professionals to get through this.
I've been inspired by so many people in local communities coming together and helping eachother and I asked myself how can I help? Well I've come up with an idea that on my own I wouldn't be able to accomplish financially at this point. But as a collective with your help we can all make a difference and support our NHS HEROES! ...
I would like to offer FREE ACCOMMODATION and travel to and from work for any NHS staff workers at Blackpool Victoria Hospital that may need a either a comfortable place to rest/shower inbetween shifts...a place where they can contact their own loved ones via Internet etc we will even put their favourite movie on for them if they wanted...giving them some normality in their lives! Or if they just simply need a good night's sleep.
Our NHS staff are key to us beating this and some staff may not be able to go home due to family members being in isolation or extra agency staff drafted in that don't have any accommodation set up yet at such short notice
We will also provide a hot meal/refreshments should they need it. Also a leading local taxi firm has agreed with me to provide transport to and from the hospital for the staff we are supporting.
Together we can help and support 10 NHS staff per day and that's just at my hotel.
100% of all donations will be used to maintain the service and we will provide daily updates on our progress.
Should donations exceed the required amount to provide our services then we have extra beds/rooms available at nearby hotels. Thankyou and be safe everyone!
