Over the past few months, generous donations to the Trust have been managed and distributed by Derriford Centre for Health & Wellbeing with the help of partners SABA and planning colleagues.
Tracey Gardner, General Manager of DCHW explained: “The majestic sight of 14,000 chocolate eggs piled high on pallets will never be forgotten.”
“Due to the overwhelming number of donations over a short period of time, tackling storage and logistics was a real learning curve!
“Perishable items were the biggest issue, and we learned that delivering the goods was safer, as it allowed for social distancing, but it was quite a feat to ensure all areas received their fair share.
“Unfortunately it was logistically impossible to share with colleagues working from home but we did get items into wider community which felt like a truly worthwhile endeavour.”
