This situation is like something out of a film, it’s something the world has never seen before, we scared and unsure, but ……
Throughout of all this, we have seen:
Communities coming together to look after the vulnerable (like our very own Helping Hands Cheadle Hulme and Bramhall).
The lovely Captain Tom amazing raising (and still raising) millions for our NHS and inspiring the nation.
Even the fashion industry are doing their bit and helping where they can. Here are a few of the companies that have got involved:
NET A PORTER: have been using their UK delivery vans to come to the aid of charities that need help delivering essential goods to the vulnerable.
BURBERRY: the brand set a goal to deliver 100,000 masks to key workers and in their factory in Yorkshire they have switched from making the classic trench to manufacturing hospital gowns.
GEORGIO ARMANI: have donated approx 2.2million euros to the coronavirus relief.
LEVIS: have donated 10,000 masks and $3 million to help fight the virus.
CHANEL: are using their factories to produce non-surgical gowns and the label have also donated 1.2million euros to local hospitals.
The list goes on, with lots of other companies joining in to help fight the cause, we have our own local heroes here in Cheadle Hulme and Bramhall too. Hulme Hall Soft Furnishings and the lovely Jane who is making laundry bags for NHS workers and super talented Sue from Modiste making scrubs for our amazing NHS workers too.
It’s clear to see out of all of this bad has come some good, it has lifted our spirits and inspired us to do more for our neighbours, phoning instead of texting, checking people are ok that live on their own. It doesn’t matter how big or small, it’s important to support each other now more than ever and continue to do so in the future.
Sending lots of love everyone - Stay safe.
Love Jo & Catherine, Fuzzy Goose xxx
