Nearly £37,000 has been raised for the Maudsley Charity’s emergency COVID-19 appeal to support frontline mental health staff and their patients across south London – including paying for basic mobile phones for patients without contracts.
“We have provided activity packs with games and crafts materials for people on the hospital wards, as well as isolated members of the community, to have something enjoyable and relaxing to do during the day.
“We’ve also purchased tablets for hospital inpatients who are unable to receive visitors so they can keep in touch with loved ones during these uncertain times. ”
Thank you to everyone who has supported our #Covid19UK appeal – here Gabrielle Richards of @MaudsleyNHS explains how your donations are benefitting patients across our #mentalhealth services. But we still need your help to help them: https://t.co/Qf8UL4L6Ct #GivingTuesdayNow pic.twitter.com/LAxjcB0sss
