Community-spirited company supports major NHS projects

Community-spirited company supports major NHS projects
Roomservice by Cort has kindly donated kitchenware, white goods and soft furnishings to support staff and patients at two major NHS projects.

The company based at 28, Barwell Business Park, has recently restarted its delivery service after COVID-19 forced them to close. 

Kitchenware and white goods were given to the NHS Seacole Centre, a temporary care facility where coronavirus patients can recover after treatment.

With space for up to 300 beds, the service is based at Surrey's former military rehabilitation centre Headley Court, near Leatherhead. 

The soft furnishings went to the Project Wingman relaxation lounge at Guildford’s Royal Surrey County Hospital, a dedicated space for NHS staff to relax and unwind before and after their shifts.   

The space has been set out as a first-class lounge and is open seven days a week. Pilots and Cabin crew from numerous airlines will be on hand to make cups of tea and coffee and to chat with NHS workers.

On its Twitter account, Roomservice by Cort, said: “To celebrate our NHS heroes, we were recently involved in helping airline crews with Project Wingman, providing scatter cushions and rugs to create a first class lounge for the staff at Royal Surrey. Thank you to the amazing NHS staff for everything you do!”  

In another tweet, it said: “We recently helped the NHS heroes at Headley Court in Surrey, providing them with white goods and kitchenware for staff to use at the brand new Seacole Centre. NHS, thank you.”
