In May 2020 we provided £20k for care boxes for staff and toiletry bags for patients. The boxes had goodies such as coffee, tea bags, squashes, pasta/noodles, porridge, cereal bars and toiletries. All wards and departments received these care boxes.
We also toiletry bags for patients during the pandemic which we very much appreciated by patients who had been admitted to the hospitals as emergency cases.
“Thank you, thank you, thank you to Friends of York Hospitals! We are very pleased with our care box and appreciate being thought about during this time”.
300 toiletry bags for in-patients were also provided. They held a selection of care products for male or female patients. The bags were made and donated by a team of seamstresses in Scarborough.
