Lincolnshire businesses making a difference 03 Apr
We've seen so many amazing acts of kindness over the last week to help the current Coronavirus situation, and no matter how big or small, anything helps!
Here is a list of local Lincolnshire businesses who are 'doing their bit' to help in any way they can…
The wonderful staff at Washingborough Academy have been working hard preparing and cooking healthy hot meals for over 70s during the coronavirus crisis. The meals are all cooked in Washingborough Academy’s award-winning kitchens, and delivered for free by volunteer parents. It’s amazing to see staff and parents of the school have joined together to help the local community in this time of need. Anyone wanting to apply for meals can contact the school on 01522 801355.
Lincoln Charity Canvas
Local photographers Andrew Scott Photography and Marilyn Shepley have partnered up with Pinpoint Media to produce NHS Charity Canvases of the Lincoln Cathedral. The Lincoln Cathedral was lit up in blue on Thursday 26th March as part of the #ClapForOurCarers campaign, supporting the NHS and carers around the UK. Beautiful shots captured by Andrew Scott and Marilyn Shepley have been turned into A3 prints costing £25 each, all profits from the sales of the canvases will go to the United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust. The canvases are available to order from www.lincolncharitycanvas.co.uk
University of Lincoln
The University of Lincoln’s School of Engineering have been busy making safety equipment to help healthcare workers in the city’s hospital tackle coronavirus. The University has already contributed a large portion of the money needed and are asking the public to donate more funds to ensure more pieces of equipment can be created. Staff at the university are also working up plans to support the production of ventilators by 3D printing parts for machines. To donate to the University’s Just Giving page, click here.
The Old Palace Lodge Lincoln
The Old Palace Lodge Hotel, owned by Jackson and Jackson Developments have made the decision to close the hotel to the public so it can serve the NHS staff during this time of need. NHS staff may need to self-isolate away from their family between shifts and have been offered rooms at the hotel to stay as long as needed.
