10,000 Pieces of PPE for Local Health & Careworkers
A phenomenal effort of support for the local Surrey community from the Caterham global family came to fruition this week with the arrival of 10,000 pieces of PPE at North Tandridge Primary Care Network – all fundraised for, sourced, arranged and donated by Caterham boarding pupils and their families.
The project was spearheaded by Lily G with support from her friends Ethan L and Electa Y who were moved by the shortage of PPE for health and social care workers and how it was affecting the local community in Caterham and Surrey. The need first came up in a regular online catch up between Mrs Quinton, Head of Beech Hanger boarding house, and her house pupils. The pupils’ responded almost immediately, keen to help in any way they could.
Said Lily: “I have quite a few amazing friends helping me out through this process. They have been supporting me and money collection couldn’t be done without them.”
The project was no mean feat but Lily and her friends took on the challenge and brought about a result that will support GP practices and almost 40 care homes across the North Tandridge area and beyond for several months.
