Solihull families give thanks to NHS workers with goodie bags

Solihull Editorial 14th Apr, 2020   0

PUPILS and staff at Solihull Preparatory School are taking part in an initiative to support of Solihull’s NHS workers.

More than 450 families have received #NHSstaffrock kits to create goodie bags for NHS key workers battling the coronavirus pandemic. The sets include four bespoke themed postcards featuring Solihull Preparatory School’s Scuffle and Twitch mascots, a list of suggested gift items to include, such as a treat or wellbeing product and four paper bags for packaging.

Pupils have been invited to personalise the postcards with a handwritten message, colourful drawings or happy photographs to make the NHS staff smile!

Mark Penney, Head of Solihull Preparatory School said: “We wanted to show the NHS staff how incredibly grateful we are for all they are doing. This is a small gesture which we hope will brighten their day. Our wonderful pupils are kind and creative and I’m delighted that this initiative allows them to harness and amplify both great qualities.

“Our families have followed all Government guidelines in the packing and production of the goodie bags and our parents have bandied together into a small army of delivery and collection volunteers to help us complete the project. It’s been an absolute joy to see our community respond with such gusto, in showing NHS staff how much we value their efforts. ”

Solihull School, parents and children have been sharing the process on social media with #NHSstaffrock.
