We have launched a new appeal #HelpUsHelpYou to support our NHS staff at the Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital during this vital time. As you are aware during this Coronavirus pandemic, our wonderful NHS staff are working extremely hard to keep everyone safe and well. It is with this in mind that we know many of these key workers will need extra support. We want to be able to provide those NHS staff who need it with meal packages and essential items to keep them going, we also aim to provide a temporary dedicated rest area where there will be refreshments available.

We are all in this together, please help us give thanks back to our wonderful NHS staff during this unprecedented time. Donate now via Virgin Money Giving.
