Whole Lotta Love for NHS staff as Kidderminster company nears fundraising target

Published Tuesday, 21st April 2020

Everyone is giving a Whole Lotta Love to NHS staff currently battling the Coronavirus crisis, including Led Zeppelin front man Robert Plant.

The Led Zeppelin lead singer, who currently lives near Kidderminster, has made a donation worth several thousand pounds to help local company MG Sportswear support the NHS.

 The company, who are based in Kidderminster, have received nearly £9,000 since setting up a Go Fund Me page just a week ago.

 They are fast approaching their original £10,000 target.

 Donations to the page will be used to help raise funds to buy fabrics to make much needed scrubs for hospital staff.

 The scrubs will be then donated across the Midlands, going to Kidderminster Hospital, and St Richard’s Hospice based in Worcester, as well as Russells Hall Hospital in Dudley, and New Cross Hospital in Wolverhampton.

Councillor John Smith, Chairman of the Health and Wellbeing Board, at Worcestershire County Council said: “Since the coronavirus crisis hit the nation, I’ve been overwhelmed with the generosity of spirit from people. We have seen people donate whatever they can, whether that be their money, time and skills in many different ways to help each other and the NHS.

It’s been very humbling, and makes you feel a real sense of pride at a really testing time.”
