A big round of applause to the two Laura’s at Guys and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust for organising such a brilliant event on Monday 15th May to raise awareness about mental health with donations in aid of APP
As part of Mental Health Awareness week, the staff in women's services at Guys & St Thomas’ could take home an amazing ‘Self-Care Goodie Bag’ in return for a suggested donation to charity. The goodie bags included, amongst other gifts and APP leaflets, some gorgeous donated gifts from LUSH, alongside mouth-watering cakes from Print Cakes!
Laura said: “I automatically thought of APP, especially after Ellie and Kat have kindly volunteered their time to assist with our training…Our communications team will be sharing photos from the day on social media and thought again we could share APP love this way.”
And there were indeed some brilliant photos from the day (see below) with some very happy faces from the staff at Guys & St Thomas’!
Laura Costello has since been nominated for an #NHS70 award for the Self Care bags – what a fantastic achievement – vote for Laura here!
And you can still donate via the Go Fund Me page here - thank you.
Thank you so much to everyone involved in organising the day, and for all the hard work involved pulling it all together, we know it takes a lot of time and energy, so a very big THANK YOU from us all at APP!
