There are a number of ways you can support Cardiff’s frontline staff. This page covers a number of FUNDRAISING INITIATIVES where you can donate money to help NHS staff, plus a list of locations where you can directly donate supplies.
There’s also another We Are Cardiff page dedicated purely to ways you can buy meals to feed staff at NHS hospitals.
Please comment below if you have more links that need to be added. And if you can, donate generously. It’s appreciated.
SUPPORT THE HEALTH BOARDS
Cardiff and Vale Health Board
This is the main charity that supports the departments and staff across the Cardiff and Vale University Health Board. Their Spread the Love campaign has just had large donations from Aaron Ramsey! The money raised through this appeal will go directly to Cardiff & Vale Health Charity’s Make It Better Fund. The doctors and nurses – local professionals who understand what is most needed for our local communities, and who are aware of what the NHS is already doing – will decide how the money raised will be used to best benefit the most vulnerable.
As well as money, the appeal is looking for donations of food and other supplies to help support local NHS staff. The original post is on Facebook so apols if you don’t got that thing. Current drop off locations are Sainsburys in Thornhill and Boots in Llanishen. Alternatively donate cash directly to the CARDIFF AND VALE HEALTH CHARITY – SPREAD THE LOVE CAMPAIGN
Aneurin Bevan University Health Board
Aneurin Bevan University Health Board covers Blaenau Gwent, Caerphilly, Monmouthshire, Newport, Torfaen and South Powys. As I know a lot of you will be living / working / have family in these places, or have family in these places, I’ve included info here on how you can support them.
Aneurin Bevan are looking for donations for NHS patients, as no visitors are allowed on site anymore. The easiest way to do this is to purchase them directly from the Aneurin Bevan Health Board Amazon Wishlist. Alternatively you can donate to the Anuerin Bevan Health Charity through GoFundMe.
The Aneurin Bevan GoFundMe page is collecting donations directly from the public to be placed into a specific fund for the COVID-19 / Coronavirus pandemic. From their page: “The Health Board is currently committing resources on a range of things in response to COVID-19 including PPE, ventilators, beds, drugs, consumables, additional staff, etc. all of which we hope to be funded by Welsh Government. We do not yet fully know how we will utilise your donations as none of us have been in this situation before. Staff well-being, essential supplies for patients and increasing volunteer activity are some of the things we are currently looking at.”
