More than 20,000 gift-bags for NHS staff have been distributed to frontline workers during the coronavirus pandemic – thanks to a partnership between sampling agency, The Goody Bag Company, and full-service logistics provider, Leicestershire-based Lemonpath.
Initially the project planned to create a 10-item gift-bag for the NHS, but donations soon doubled as businesses rallied to support the initiative, and the final ‘thank you’ bags were filled with 25 treats.
The project was completed in just under six weeks from start to finish, with Lemonpath picking, packing and dispatching the bags to hardworking NHS staff.
Amanda Garratt, founder of The Goody Bag Company, said: “We have worked with Lemonpath for 10 years now and I knew they would be able to take on this enormous challenge. Despite the pandemic, the team at Lemonpath were able to turnaround this project due to their excellent working practices.”
“We have worked with The Goody Bag Company for a very long time and it is rewarding to hear how much the business values our input,” commented Chris Antliff, Lemonpath’s Chairman.
“The NHS project was truly exceptional, and it was great to be involved and send over 20,000 welfare packs to help recognise and reward NHS staff. This project shows just what can be achieved, even in the middle of a pandemic, when you’re surrounded by a good team of people.”
