M&S has announced that it is making weekly free food donations for the HSE workers at The Mater Hospital and St James Hospital and Cork University Hospital.
Deliveries will include prepared meals and treats for the next four weeks, with this week’s delivery including 2,000 Easter Eggs for frontline workers and their families ahead of the weekend, the group said.
The British retailer said that it is delivering much needed toiletries including toothbrushes and shower gels to the City West self-isolation facility to help provide comfort for patients.
"With personal challenges being faced by everyone during these unprecedented times, and our own frontline colleagues working so hard, it is so important that we all pull together," said Ken Scully, country manager, M&S Ireland.
M&S is also donating thousands of sets of soft thermals to be used by frontline workers at Covid-19 Testing Centres, particularly those in outdoor locations such as drive-thru services, the group said.
It said that it will also supply t-shirts and pyjama sets in a range of size, for patients that need them.
"We really are all in this together and we hope that providing this practical help can make it just a little easier for them through these challenging times," Scully added.
