2020 and the start of 2021 has been tough for Love Water. Most of our business customers have either been closed for the majority of the time, or reduced staff. It has impacted us greatly.
However, during the pandemic in 2020, Love Water still decided to deliver free bottled water to a number of London Hospitals with busy Covid wards as a “thank you” gesture for the amazing commitment and passion delivered by the nurses and doctors.
In January 2021 Love Water received an email from one of the hospitals, with the following excerpt below:-
“…..Apologies for contacting you unexpectedly. We at CW+ the charity of Chelsea and Westminster and West Middlesex Hospitals, never thought we would be in this position once again.
We hoped that Love Water could once again help my colleagues on the frontline, those working in ICU and in COVID wards who are in need of soft drink items. They have no time to source these things themselves as they are working in shifts and only have time to eat and sleep. If you were able to supply anything like this at all that would be fantastic. Anything you can do to help would be amazing and most gratefully received.
Thank you so much in advance for your consideration of this request and all the best to your team and stay safe…..”
Love Water decided to do our small bit in the grand scale, and help again by delivering bottles of water. Knowing how well the donation was received, we contacted other busy hospitals that we knew had been in the headlines showing the pressure the Covid wards / ICU’s were under.
Together with supply partners who also wanted to get involved, we are now organising / or have delivered to an additional ten hospitals:-
- University College Hospital – London
- Royal Sussex County Hospital – Brighton
- Royal Brompton Hospital – London
- Epsom General Hospital – Epsom
- St Heliers Hospital – Epsom
- Royal Free London Hospital – London
- Royal Surrey County Hospital – Guildford
- Royal London Hospital – London
- St Barts Hospital – London
- East Surrey Hospital – Redhill
Many thanks to our fantastic suppliers for their support:-
Wenlock Spring for contributing part of Love Water’s cost.
Vitstix for the supply of amazing flavoured low calorie single liquid portions of vitamins as an optional addition to the water.
And from one of our brilliant clients, Joe & Sephs Gourmet Popcorn for a nice supply of their superb product as an additional little treat!
