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.”

FEED STAFF AT HOSPITALS

So far I’ve come across THREE different fundraisers organised by amazing local businesses, all raising money to deliver food /  coffee /  meals / snacks etc to staff in hospitals in Cardiff.

FEED THE HEATH! CO-ORDINATED BY WATERLOO TEA – Feeding NHS staff at UHW – Heath Hospital

Waterloo Tea’s GOFUNDME – Feeding NHS staff at UHW – Heath Hospital

Working in collaboration with the NHS staff and volunteers, Waterloo Tea have set up a volunteer cafe in the Heath Hospital Sports and Social Club, open from Monday 30 March, providing free food and drink to NHS staff working there.  (It’s not a Waterloo Tea cafe – they are just co-ordinating and their staff are volunteering there). This is the Feed The Heath project!

The cafe is intended to be a place close to the hospital buildings where NHS workers can get some respite. With cafes on site closing down recently the food options are becoming even more limited. They’re aiming to offer healthy nutritious food to fuel the staff at the hospital.

They will also be co-ordinating any donations of food that businesses want to give to the hospital. They are asking other businesses/initiatives to get in touch, so they can coordinate together. So far they are supported by Ace Essential Supplies, Windsor Fruit and Veg, Cakes by Angela, Juboraj Restaurants, Brod – Danish Bakery, Early Bird Cafe, Penylan PantryMilkwood Restaurant, Penylan Preserves, Wellfield Fish Bar, Restaurant James Sommerin, Secret Garden CafeWelshman’s Lunch, Lucinda’s Kitchen, PLUS MORE!

HOW TO HELP:

  • Suppliers – please donate Ingredients for chefs to cook with / Disposables / take away boxes and coffee cups (ideally compostable or recyclable)
  • Caterers – please donate prepared meals they can deliver to the hospital for healthcare workers to eat something  healthy and nutritious. They  can contribute to the cost of ingredients from the fundraising.
  • Businesses & Individuals – please donate cash donations for purchasing essential items including ingredients, drinks, disposables.
  • DONATE TO WATERLOO TEA – FEEDING NHS STAFF
  • Follow @FeedTheHeath on Twitter

ORGANISED BY HOLY YOLKS – Help the Heroes

Holy Yolks JUST GIVING – #HELPTHEHEROES

The #helptheheroes campaign has been set up to help feed our amazing NHS staff by a collective of independent food businesses from the Cardiff and Newport area. The plan: A weekly food based care package, made up of goods from each independent business involved, will be dropped off to a different hospital each week in the Cardiff, Vale and Newport area. So far wonderful Kev has worked with loads of wonderful local chefs and kitchens, including Wild ThingLeyli JoonBad Boy Brownies – and has delivered food and drinks to Heath Hospital, Llandough Hospital, and Rockwood Hospital (who have no on-site food provision for staff at all, so really need the food!)

ORGANISED BY GRAZING SHED – Feed the Frontline

Grazing Shed’s GOFUNDME – FEED THE FRONTLINE

This joint effort co-ordinated Grazing Shed pulls in a ton of local food businesses to feed and water NHS frontline workers. You donate money to the campaign, the food makers make food and deliver it to hospitals in Cardiff.
