Punchline Business and Community Champion: ProCook offers water aid to NHS staff

ProCook has said thank you to the NHS in Gloucestershire, donating water bottles to 1600 frontline workers at hospitals in Cheltenham and Gloucester.

The cookware and kitchenware retailer, who are based at Waterwells Business Park, Quedgeley, gifted the bottles to key workers across the organisation.

The company employs 535 people nationally with 120 based in Gloucester and has shops in Gloucester Quays and Cirencester.

And the gesture has seen ProCook named as a Punchline Business and Community Champion - an initiative backed by GFirst LEP, the Growth Hub, Gloucestershire County Council and the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner.

The staff benefiting from water bottles include critical care and theatres teams, emergency room staff and respiratory nurses who have been providing care for patients throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

And the bottles have been shared across other areas including teams working with patients receiving cancer treatment as well as drivers, switchboard staff and waste disposal personnel.

ProCook  founder Daniel O'Neill said:  "We wanted give something to Gloucestershire hospital staff to say thanks for the fantastic job they are all doing looking after us during this pandemic.

"We feel it's important to support both the frontline workers and all the unsung heroes of the NHS as it takes an incredible effort throughout the organisation to keep things running smoothly."

He continued: "A drinks bottle is a small gesture but one we are happy to offer and hopefully it will help keep the teams going on their long shifts.

"Most importantly we want to say, from ProCook, a big thank you to everyone who works for the NHS in Gloucestershire.

"Most of our head office staff live in the area and are directly benefiting from their hard work."

Cheltenham and Gloucester Hospitals Charity is supporting NHS staff through its COVID-19 Appeal.

Head of fundraising Richard Smith said:  "We would like to thank ProCook for their kindness in supporting our local NHS staff.

"We are very grateful to all local businesses who have been getting behind our COVID-19 Appeal at this unprecedented time.

"It really does make such a difference to staff to know how appreciated they are by the wider community."
