Sharing is Caring, PPE from Vietnam to UK – Rainbow bags for homeless people

July 17

The Brighton based hotel group, who own the Charm Hotel & Spa has supported the NHS, frontline workers, homeless people, and local Charities during the Coronavirus pandemic by donating personal protective equipment. The group have also offered 80 rooms of accommodation across their 3 hotels in the City. Most heart-warming, the management and staff have come in to produce breakfast rainbow bags for homeless people in Brighton & Sussex and gone out to distribute them daily.

The Golden Lotus Investment group which owns the hotels has rallied to support hospital trusts by providing vital equipment including masks, gowns, goggles and gloves to the NHS and frontline workers including care homes and others on the frontline of caring for those who might have contracted the Covid-19 virus. PPE has also been donated to some Care homes and charities in Sussex including Chestnut Tree House, nr Arundel and St Barnabas House in Worthing.

The hotel group has dedicated its resources during this lockdown which has affected its business like the rest of the country to support those impacted by the outbreak of Covid-19 by joining forces with a manufacturer in Vietnam, where the owners come from and who are producing PPE as the outbreak continues to put a strain on the NHS, Care Homes, Charities, frontline workers and those in need in Brighton and around Sussex.

Vietnam was regarded as highly vulnerable, given its long border and extensive trade with China, densely populated urban areas, and limited healthcare infrastructure. But Vietnam’s cost-effective containment strategy resulted in only 352 confirmed cases and no deaths in a population of almost 100 million people. The country was among the first to lift virtually all domestic containment measures.

Leo Nguyen, Managing Director of the group of Hotels, said: “Vietnam has been very lucky so since the outbreak of Covid-19, our priority here has been the safety and wellbeing of our employees, our customers and our local communities in Brighton and all over Sussex and our contribution is to say thanks to the awesome NHS staff and all those front line workers who have remained focussed on doing the right thing for all of us.”

Sam Jones from the procurement Unit of Surrey & Sussex Health care NHS Trust said, “We have received the boxes of PPE from the Charm Hotel, so thank you very much for the generous donation. We did not realise there would be so much. It was a very nice surprise.”

Jo Bacon, Corporate & Gifts Fundraiser for St Barnabas said, “We are so grateful for your very kind and generous donation of PPE for our Care Teams at Chestnut Tree House and St Barnabas House – thank you so much. “

The hotel group also offered the UK Gov Covid 19 Response team use of 80 rooms from their 3 hotels in the City, The Charm Hotel & Spa, The Sea Spray and the Topps Hotel in Regency Square for healthcare staff and key workers.

NHS workers are putting in so much and deserve support and recognition. These are extraordinary times. We are all just thinking on our feet and this is one way we could help.
