Hard-working staff from the NHS are being treated to baskets of fruit from an Ely supermarket as part of a healthy new initiative.
Waitrose will donate a basket of fruit worth up to £20 every fortnight to the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust’s Ely Neighbourhood Team.
The fruit will be shared among the team’s 70-strong members of staff including district nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, mental health professionals who provide care and rehabilitation to older people with long-term conditions in Ely and East Cambridgeshire.
Poonam Hyland, interim team manager of the Ely Neighbourhood Team, said: “This donation from Waitrose at Ely is very welcome and really timely. We are having a big drive across CPFT to improve not just the wellbeing of patients, but also our staff over the next 12 months.”
Debbie Walker, from Waitrose in Ely, said: “It’s a great initiative and we are happy to support it.”
