Rockliffe Hall has donated hundreds of toiletries to County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust following an appeal for products to help patients.
The five-AA-red-star hotel in Hurworth, near Darlington, gifted 576 shower gels, usually found in guest rooms, to Darlington Memorial Hospital after a message went out asking for products for many patients who don’t have any toiletries, due to the current ban on visitors because of the Covid-19 outbreak.
Teresa Kingston, commercial director at Rockliffe Hall, said: “Rockliffe Hall always looks for ways in which to support the local community so when we saw the appeal on social media, our decision to donate some products was immediate.”
Pat Chambers, charity development manager at County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust, said: “When the call went out to local hotels to see if they could help the patients in Darlington Memorial there was a swift response from the team at Rockliffe Hall, donating two large boxes of shower gel to help our cause.”
Rockliffe Hall closed its hotel and spa in March following government advice to help stop the spread of Covid-19.
