Keeping patients cool at Lexden Maternity Ward, Colchester Hospital

Every year, our Coffee Shop staff donate all their tips to charity. This year, they have chosen to support Colchester Hospital.

In the last two months, the team have purchased and delivered eighteen fans to the Acute Cardiac Ward, Langham Ward and West Bergholt Ward. This week, thanks to the overwhelming generosity of our customers, they delivered another six fans to Lexden Maternity Ward (together with some delicious cakes for nurses, patients and their families on the ward). With the current spell of warm weather, these fans were very gratefully received.

With any further tips collected this year, the Coffee Shop staff plan to buy more fans for other wards at the hospital – watch this space!
