The films may not be showing right now but community-owned cinema and cafe, Wellington Orbit are showing the love for the NHS staff at Princess Royal Hospital and Royal Shrewsbury Hospital by creating and delivering Orbit Care Packages for them during the national lockdown. Hannah Davison who heads up food operations at Wellington Orbit is putting together the care packages while the usual cafe trade is restricted due to lockdown measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
Following the success of our hamper delivery in January we are supporting them again with even more essential pick-me-up items such as moisturisers, breakfast bars, tasty snacks and more. We are once again asking the community to come together to show their support by donating a small amount to this project. Each donation will go towards creating as many packages for the NHS as possible and will be greatly received by the teams at both Hospital sites.
Send in thank you messages
We are also asking the community to send in more thank you messages which really help boost the morale of the teams. Any messages we receive will be included in the care packages which will be shared between the two hospital sites. Visit www.wellingtonorbit.co.uk/nhs to send your thank you in. You can still send in thank you messages even if you don't wish to donate.
