We have seen an open letter from Leader of the Council to the community about a new project called Project Hope. This is the introduction:
The COVID-19 situation in London is the most serious it has ever been. Our NHS services are now close to breaking point, as the current surge in cases threatens to overwhelm London hospitals in a matter of days
Queen Elizabeth Hospital is in the heart of our community. Many of our residents work there, many of us have been treated there and now, more than ever before, we need to come together as a community and support the whole hospital team.
We’re asking local businesses and individuals to donate the following items and services to staff who are working long hours, under intense physical and emotionally demanding circumstances, with many unable to go home because they need to protect their own family and friends from catching the virus.
We are putting together a team of people to support our brilliant NHS staff in the hospital and are asking for across the Greenwich community. Please share this letter widely and please note that the hospital are asking for donations NOT to be dropped off at the QEH but through this official route so we can coordinate things and do our best to support the community.
Please share and get involved.
