The hotel in Hurworth, near Darlington, gifted 576 shower gels, which normally go in guests’ rooms, to Darlington Memorial Hospital after a message went out asking for products for many patients who don’t have any toiletries, due to the current ban on visitors.
Pat Chambers, Charity Development Manager at County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust, said: “When the call went out to local hotels to see if they could help the patients in Darlington Memorial there was a swift response from the team at Rockliffe Hall, donating 2 large boxes of shower gel to help our cause. During COVID 19 there is a total ban on visitors to the hospital leaving many patients, particularly emergency admissions, without access to essential toiletries. We are thoroughly delighted with the support received from the Rockliffe team - huge thanks to everyone involved.”
Teresa Kingston, Commercial Director at Rockliffe Hall, said: “Rockliffe Hall always looks for ways in which to support the local community so when we saw Pat’s appeal on social media, our decision to donate some products was immediate.”
