Well done to up-market footwear brand - Fairfax & Favor - for raising over £60,000 for NHS charities.
For the month of April, this purveyor of fancy footwear donated 10% of all their online sales to the NHS Covid-19 Urgent Appeal Fund.
This Urgent Appeal Fund raises grants for NHS Charities Together, a collective organisation which aims to provide blanket support to NHS staff, volunteers, and patients through various measures. Some of these include:
covering travel and accommodation expenses
wellbeing packs (food deliveries, high energy/protein bars/drinks, refreshments, wash kits, overnight stay kits etc.)
electronic tablets for isolated patients to communicate to loved ones
rest and recuperation rooms
resource long-term mental health support from staff and families involved
Our friends at Fairfax & Favor raised a total of £61,123.97 during April. But, apparently, they are not going to stop there. Having previously released pink tassels in aid of Breast Cancer Care, they have revealed that a limited-edition NHS tassel will soon be on offer. In the coming month, a two-tone blue and white suede tassel will be made available on their website for £25.00 and 100% of the profits will go towards the NHS Urgent Appeal Fund.
