The team at Bath Royal University Hospital
Dr Watson outside Milton Keynes University Hospital
Last week I wrote about our sense of purpose and the values that we hold dear at Extract Coffee Roasters being more important now than ever before.
One of those values is just how strongly we believe in the idea of community. In the idea that we are all better together.
Right now, society is pulling together in ways that many of us have never seen or experienced before and, I don’t know about you, but one thing I’ve really noticed in recent weeks is that small gestures matter more now than ever before.
A glancing smile from a stranger as you pass them on your morning run, your neighbour checking that you have enough supplies or being able to thank the postman for delivering that book you’d always been meaning to read.
And so, I thought I would share our small gesture this week - working with our great friends at Boston Tea Party to install and donate coffee supplies to the incredible A&E team at the Royal United Hospital Bath.
In the scheme of things, it really is the smallest of gestures. But acts of kindness mean everything right now and this is one way that we can support our community. Our Production Manager Sean has also sent coffee to the team at Milton Keynes University Hospital.
Next up is kitting out the ICU and ED staff rooms at Bristol Southmead, later this week. We’ll be keeping over 400 frontline staff caffeinated.
If you know of any other hospitals that you think we could we help out in some small way, please let me know.
