We’re thrilled to announce that throughout May, we’re running a Buy One, Give One scheme. This means that every time you purchase our Midnight Feast night cream throughout the month, we’ll donate one to frontline workers at the Chelsea & Westminster Hospital and St Thomas’ Hospital.
So with that in mind, we thought we’d highlight some excellent initiatives that you can get involved with to support our key workers across the country.
Nominate a key worker to win a set of Sönd products
To celebrate our Buy One, Give One scheme, and all of our key workers, we're giving away our entire collection of Sönd topical products, plus our expert nutritionist Sara Davenport's guides, Reboot Your Health and Viral Self Defence, to one key worker, to help them take care of themselves during these testing times.
To enter, simply head to our Instagram and tag someone on the competition post who deserves to be pampered and tell us why. Make sure you're following @SondSkin and @Reboot.Health so we can notify you if you've won!
Handy with a sewing machine? Frontline workers need constant supplies of Personal Protective Equipment, and while the government is working to get these in place, you can help locally. A&E nurse Ashleigh Lindsell has shared sewing patterns online for scrubs and is working with hospitals and GP practices. More than 18,000 people have joined the Facebook page, called For The Love Of Scrubs - Our NHS Needs You. Find out if your local trust needs help.
Food, Glorious Food
At 5pm each day, the NHS canteens close. This means frontline staff working anti-social hours also have to deal with sourcing meals in the night, ideally from somewhere other than a vending machine. After all, we’d all like our doctors & nurses to have more than a packet of Hula Hoops in their stomach when helping us recover. There’s a few options to help - Meals for the NHS, where you can donate money for meals, food is ordered from local restaurants and delivered to people working. You can also support frontline staff via Deliveroo - just download the app and select the 'support the NHS' box on the homepage to see local options.
Take A Weight Off
Mental health and physical wellbeing has never been more important for everyone, and especially for our frontline workers. Here at Sönd, we take mind and body wellbeing very seriously, so we’re pleased to see ‘Duty To Care’ offering help. Duty to Care is an initiative providing NHS workers with wellbeing support, via free online consultations with therapists, nutritionists and meditation experts. The experts are working for reduced rates, and the initiative aims to fund the rest through donations, so that NHS workers can access support for free.
