Anpario PLC has donated £10,000 to Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals Charity in support of an appeal to create a pair of ‘Rainbow Gardens’.
The generous contribution will go towards the Charity’s Rainbow Garden Appeal, which seeks to raise funds to create two memorial gardens in honour of those lost to Covid-19. The company has also made an identical donation to Nottingham Hospitals Charity.
The NHS charity is fundraising with the ambition to create two Rainbow Gardens at Doncaster Royal Infirmary (DRI) and Bassetlaw Hospital sites respectively. These spaces, once created, will be dedicated to the memory of all those people lost locally to Covid-19, and to colleagues at the Trust, Kevin Smith and Dr Medhat Atalla, who sadly passed away following treatment for the illness. They will also provide a space of comfort, contemplation and relaxation for the friends, family and loved ones of those who have died, as well as for staff working within the hospitals.
Launched in mid-June, the Trust’s Rainbow Garden appeal has raised over £20,000 with a variety of well-wishers including local businesses. DBTH has cared for almost 700 patients with Covid-19 since March, safely discharging 440 individuals, while 223 local people have sadly passed away due to complications related to the disease. If you wish to support the Rainbow Garden’s appeal you can donate on the Just Giving Page: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/doncaster-bassetlaw or contact the fundraising team on 01302 644244.
