*THANK YOU* NHS & Healthcare Heroes

It’s undeniable that throughout the pandemic, NHS staff across the board have made outstanding sacrifices to look after those in need, despite putting themselves at risk on a day to day basis. Many have been without family and loved ones for months on end to ensure the best health of all those around them, preventing the spread and treating the sick.

A few of the Datesand team members have been juggling childcare while working from home so we set them a great task to help us show our thanks with their beautifully coloured in NHS rainbow posters!

Well done Lewis, Willow and Amari…

Easter fell towards the earlier side of the UK lockdown and even as adults, we appreciate an excuse for a chocolate treat! And it’s fair to say that NHS staff have been more deserving of a treat than ever before, so the least we could do was drop off a few for our local hospitals to enjoy!



More important than chocolate though, a supply of high-quality PPE has been vital in keeping front-line staff safe. As long-term suppliers of effective PPE, Datesand have made it our mission to improve stocks and have quality products and materials on offer for anyone who may need it. The high demand for PPE meant that there was not an abundance to be used at any convenience for healthcare workers, and so we aimed to keep some aside to donate to local facilities.

The brilliant staff at Willow Wood Hospice were thrilled to receive our donation and grateful for anything to help them stay safe at this still uncertain time.
