Radio Ninesprings thanked for supporting local NHS Appeal

Released On 8th Mar 2021

An appeal broadcast on Radio Ninesprings 104.5 FM - local community radio station for Yeovil and South Somerset- has helped to generate donations of 5,000 personal products for giving to local NHS workers. 

The ‘Nurturing Hospital Staff Appeal’ was launched in January to collect personal products for giving to NHS employees at both Yeovil and Dorchester hospitals. Drop-off points were set-up in shops and houses for people to take their donations. Products donated during the six-week campaign ranged from face cream to bath salts and included certain food items. 

Organiser of the "Nurturing Hospital Staff Appeal’, Anna Carrick-Smith said: “Stress levels in the NHS have been quite high and being able to give staff these personal items helped bring a little comfort. The public’s generosity was fantastic. We’re grateful for the support given by local businesses and to the local radio station, Radio Ninesprings for broadcasting the appeal." 

The local businesses that supported the appeal are: 

The Beauty Room in Beaminster
