USP College, which include the Palmer’s College campus in Thurrock, are raising money for the Mid and South Essex Foundation Trust to support the NHS heroes on the frontline of the battle against Covid-19.
Mid and South Essex NHS Foundation Trust works alongside Basildon and Southend hospitals, caring for over 1.2 million people in central and south Essex.
They have already achieved their target of £1000, with the current total raised at £1130 as of today (Tuesday 14th April).
At the start of the fundraising, they posted the following message on their Just Giving page:
“We decided to set up a Just Giving page to raise money for the Mid and South Essex NHS Trust as we believe that our staff and students have the power to make a difference. As we all know, the NHS are in need of support more than ever, and the money we raise could be used to order new equipment, pay for someone’s care in hospital, and contribute to staff working hard in the hospitals.
“To kickstart the donations, the College will be contributing £500, and we hope that you will follow us with a donation, no matter how big or small.”
