We would like to say a huge thank you to thortful cards and customers who have raised an amazing £130,125.50 for NHS Charities Together. Thank you for supporting NHS charities, and thank you for caring for the NHS.
We’re truly grateful to thortful cards and the amazing generosity they have shown in supporting NHS workers throughout the pandemic, raising such a phenomenal sum by donating 5p from every Mother’s Day card and £5 from each bouquet of “rainbow” Tulips sold via their website for Mother’s Day.
This impressive donation supports NHS Charities Together to fund vital projects throughout the UK via our member NHS charities, to meet the immediate practical and emotional needs of patients and NHS staff who are working in difficult circumstances to deliver life-saving care.
NHS Charities Together funds are helping those experiencing bereavement as result of losing loved ones to Covid-19, and connecting isolated patients with those they care for with tablet computers.
Longer-term recovery from the impact of Covid is also being aided through our support for wellbeing projects, as the pandemic continues to present challenges for the NHS and take a toll on the mental health of staff.
Andy Pearce, Chief Executive Officer at thortful, said:
“This year Mother’s Day at thortful was about giving a bit back; we wanted to thank the wonderful people working within the NHS for their tireless service over the last year. I am delighted to announce that, thanks to our customers generous donations, we will be donating over £130,0000 to NHS Charities Together.”
Ellie Orton, CEO of NHS Charities Together, said:
“The team at thortful has been incredible in their support of NHS Charities Together, and from this unbelievable amount raised we can continue with our support of our 241 NHS charity members throughout the UK with a whole host of initiatives supporting mental health and community projects. “To everyone who purchased cards or the rainbow bouquet for Mother’s Day from thortful, you are supporting our amazing NHS staff, volunteers and patients throughout the UK – thank you to you all.”
