When mother of two, Non Stevens, saw how the COVID-19 was starting to hit the Swansea Bay area, her family felt compelled to help.
Non, who lives in Cardiff but has relatives in Swansea, decided to set up a JustGiving page to support the NHS in Swansea Bay.
She said “For our NHS to help us, we need to help them. Let’s give the frontline NHS team the help they will need. We need to act. We cannot wait until it is too late”
Non contacted the Swansea Bay Health Charity fundraising team, and the page was set up with the fund going into the Helping Hand fund.
The Doctors, Nurses and local professionals, who understand what is needed most, will decide how the money raised will be spent. The monies donated will not replace statutory funding. It will be used to fund additional items that go over and above what the NHS is funding.
Non concluded “Your donation could help save the life of a friend or a neighbour, and will definitely help reduce the strain and improve the morale of a healthcare workforce that will be put under even more pressure than it already is.”
