M&S supports NHS response to Covid-19

Marks & Spencer is helping the NHS through the Covid-19 crisis by donating thousands of items of clothing to be used in NHS hospitals.

The retailer is providing “We are the NHS” branded t-shirts to form part of the uniform pack for the frontline team at London’s  Nightingale Hospital as well as individual packs of clothing to give to discharged patients. In addition, M&S is donating over 4,000 pyjama sets for use as scrubs to the NHS in Derbyshire.

Available in a range of sizes, the  clothing care packs will be for male and female patients and will contain a t-shirt, jumper, joggers, knickers or boxers, and socks.

The retailer’s support also extends to food. From next week, M&S Food will start a new, twice-weekly free food delivery service for NHS workers at St Mary’s Hospital Paddington and Great Ormond Street Hospital.

It is also donating to the NHS Charities Together Covid-19 Urgent Appeal and has enabled customers to select the appeal as their Sparks charity.

Steve Rowe, chief executive of M&S, said: “We’re doing our bit to help the NHS by focussing on what we do best – providing great food and clothes – in the hope we can make it just a little easier for our NHS heroes to do what they do best, as well as the patients in their care. We get through these challenging times by pulling together and it’s been truly humbling to read the suggestions that have been pouring in from colleagues and customers alike with ideas for how we can help those on the NHS frontline. “
