Hot refreshments on tour, thanks to Salvation Army

Written by on 10 April 2020

The Salvation Army has taken a tour around the sites and offices of Kent Community Health NHS Foundation Trust, providing hot refreshments for our hardworking colleagues.

Bacon and egg sandwiches, hot tea and fresh coffee were prepared and cooked in a portable kitchen by volunteers from the Salvation Army at each site, with social distancing and health and safety being fully observed, as a thank you for the continuing hard work by our NHS colleagues.

“Our emergency response teams are well known for supporting individuals and communities at times of crisis.  Salvation Army volunteers across Kent have been pleased to roll up their sleeves to support our hard-working NHS colleagues as they carry out their vital roles,” said Rob Saunders from the Salvation Army.

Natalie Davies, Corporate Services Director from Kent Community Health NHS Foundation Trust, said: “Our colleagues and other organisations, including SECamb and Kent Police, which we have invited to join us, have been so appreciative for this generous donation from the Salvation Army.

“The food was lovely and it was so nice that they were able to get around to each of our sites during the past couple of weeks. This is a great example of the community coming together to support the services fighting Coronavirus.”

The Salvation Army has visited Sevenoaks Hospital, Hawkhurst Hospital, West View in Tenterden, Whitstable and Tankerton Hospital, Queen Victoria Memorial Hospital in Herne Bay and Deal Victoria Memorial Hospital.
