The Rainbow Garden Appeal aimed to create a memorial garden in honour of those lost to COVID-19, providing a place of comfort and contemplation for its visitors. Anpario staff volunteered their time to work on the Rainbow Garden Memorial during the build, creating a valuable outdoor space for the friends, family and loved ones of those who sadly passed away, as well as for staff working within the hospital.
During the height of the PPE shortages in 2020, Anpario were able to use their logistics expertise and business contacts to source 50,000 medical grade face masks. These were donated and distributed, with the help of staff volunteers, to more than 12 local care homes, hospices and community care providers surrounding our Manton Wood head office.
Richard Edwards CEO of Anpario plc, commented “We are extremely proud to have been presented with this award and to have been able to support our local community during the challenging times as a result of the pandemic over the past year. Anpario wanted to recognise the heroic contribution made by NHS staff and key workers in the fight to manage and control the virus and offer our thanks by giving back to the local community, in which a large number of our workforce reside.”
Anpario and its staff remain committed to supporting future activities and charitable events through its links with DBTH. They are also pleased to announce a second donation of face masks which is being undertaken imminently, and staff remain committed to fund raising for its charity of the year MacMillan Cancer Support.
