John Lewis gift SDAs to NHS

This week John Lewis & Partners has started to donate 250 electrical products such as coffee machines, kettles and toasters to the staff rooms and wellbeing areas at 25 acute London hospitals, and the Nightingale Hospitals in Harrogate.

The retailers’ support for the NHS also includes the design of two wellbeing areas and a multi-faith room for NHS staff at the Nightingale in Manchester. This week it also announced the reopening its textiles factory (Herbert Parkinson) in Lancashire to make protective gowns for the NHS. Partners (usually sewing bespoke home textiles and curtains) are now making around 8,000 washable, clinical gowns for the Northumbria NHS Foundation Trust.

John Lewis is also donating over 20,000 metres of cotton fabric from its haberdashery departments and distribution centres to “For the Love of Scrubs” and ‘Scrubs Glorious Scrubs’, groups who now have thousands of members who are making scrubs for the NHS. The donated fabric is expected to make around 6,000 scrubs.
