Supporting the NHS: Donating £1 For Every £50 Spent

In a new initiative to show how much we value the tremendous work done by the National Health Service in these unprecedented times, GardenSite has decided to give £1 from every £50 you spend online to the NHS.

Created by Robert Hall on Monday, 6th of April, 2020.
Updated on Tuesday, 7th of April, 2020.


To show our appreciation to the NHS, to all of their amazing staff and the incredible non-stop work they're doing...

We're currently donating one in every fifty pounds spent at GardenSite.co.uk to our marvellous National Health Service.

The NHS is a unique organisation that we should all be proud of, especially in these difficult times. All our customers need to do during this event is complete their purchase as normal and, for every fifty pounds spent, we'll automatically donate a pound to the NHS Charities Together!

All proceeds will be donated to nhscharitiestogether.co.uk (Registered Charity 1186569), a group of NHS charity trusts who work tirelessly to raise vital funds for the many different yet equal parts of the health service.

Although you'll find the current situation has affected some stock levels and delivery times, we are still open for business 24/7 offering over 12,000 products, and you'll have the satisfaction of knowing that a proportion of your purchase will be going towards the tremendous work of our NHS. You can see live updates for our delivery timeframes on our let us deliver page here

 

Covid-19 and The NHS

Emma Hall, Senior Nurse at NHSDue to the Covid-19 virus sweeping the country and across the globe, it's clearer than ever before to see the vital work being done by the NHS which has escalated during this crisis. They are a workforce like no other who are on the front line and whose dedication we should all admire and respect.

At GardenSite. we are well aware of the dangers which NHS staff face. Andrew Hall, one of the partners at GardenSite has experienced first hand just what our NHS staff are having to go through on a daily basis, the pressures they're under and the non-stop work involved. His wife, Maggie is a pharmacy technician, while their daughter Emma is a senior nurse (pictured right), both on the front line and both employed to work long hours, and now even longer during this crisis. It'll be Emma's 10th year working with the NHS this year and we're sure her hard work, patience and diligence have all helped with the recovery of thousands of her patients.

That's why we're doing our best to help support the NHS along with the help of our valuable customers.

Other Ways To Get Involved

Appreciation is already being shown in many ways, not least the spontaneous clapping, pot banging and siren wailing that is currently taking place every Thursday night at 8pm in the UK. A sign of showing our thanks and appreciation to NHS, delivery, supermarket and front line workers by receiving a well-deserved round of applause from the nation. If you missed it last week but wondered what the noise was, make sure to get involved this Thursday at 8pm. Simply stand outside the front door and clap together with neighbours, your street and the entire nation.

A rainbow during the coronavirus.Alternatively, and a great activity to get the kids involved with, are the rainbows appearing in many people's windows. These rainbows are a sign of colour, life, happiness and motivation to everyone who passes by during these unprecedented and isolated times. It's really easy to do, all you need are some crayons and a couple of sheets of scrap paper. Get colouring as big or as small as you desire and proudly place it in a front window for the world to see.

The response from everyone in the UK has been remarkable, but what the NHS needs now is the finance to buy new ventilators, testing and protective equipment to carry on their work, to build extra facilities and invest in the drugs to fight the coronavirus, not only now but in the weeks and months to come. We'll keep doing our bit and we hope you'll join in too, in whichever way you can.

To all the NHS staff out there - we're proud of you!
