Community show their spirit to come together to support Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals

By Eric White

DESPITE the difficulties of these times, it seems nothing can knock the community spirit in the area.

Some great examples of generosity and comradery have been seen in the community and none less than in the case of Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals Charity, who continue to receive support thanks to heroes and heroines.

On their Facebook page, the charity posted the following message along with the accompanying image (below): “Thank you to the guys from Team NHS who come along and donated amazing care boxes for our staff. Thank you to everyone in the community who has supported their fundraising.”
