Neal's Yard donate care packages to Hospice

Last week, local Neal’s Yard Remedies group leaders Charlotte Watson and Julie Mercer dropped the care packages off at the Hospice, on Tadcaster Road in York, containing hand creams and beauty balms.

This came as part of a national scheme by Neal’s Yard Remedies to provide products for health care providers, food banks and others in need of a pick-me-up. St Leonard’s Hospice was identified as one of these organisations to benefit.

Charlotte and Julie were delighted to drop off the care packages as Charlotte explains: “We were really happy that St Leonard’s Hospice were selected as one of the organisations to benefit from the care packages. One of the key values of Neal’s Yard Remedies is ‘people helping people’ which is reflected in the work of the Hospice too.

“We hope these products will help Hospice staff – as well as being very moisturising and good for the skin, the essential oils used in the products are relaxing and uplifting so it’s a little well-deserved treat too.”

Jenny Brandom, Director of Clinical Services at St Leonard’s Hospice said: “We were so grateful to receive the care packages from Charlotte and Julie, and would like to extend our thanks to Neal’s Yard Remedies. As frontline staff, our clinical teams wear PPE day in day out, and are washing their hands very regularly during shifts which can take its toll. I know our team really appreciates the lovely products.”
