Caring cops from a specialist motorway unit donated hundreds of pounds worth of goodies to the hard-working staff at Royal Stoke University Hospital.
The Central Motorway Policing Group (CMPG) – who cover major routes such as the M6 or A500 – held a collection to raise money for food, flowers, and treats for staff at the Hartshill hospital as they battle against the coronavirus pandemic.
A total of £575 was raised by officers from CMPG, their families and colleagues from partner agencies such as Highways England.
The kind-hearted bobbies then delivered the goodies to the NHS staff at 8pm yesterday (April 16) during the weekly clap for carers.
Sergeant Rob Powell, from Central Motorway Policing Group, said: “This is an unprecedented time and the NHS are facing it head-on. These donations were a bit of relief for them and something to take their mind off things.
“Some of the staff came out during the clap but it especially moving when we looked up to see staff on the wards and patients clapping with us.
“The looks on their faces – they looked like they’d won a million pounds!
“We’re all working to help each other in these testing times and we’ll continue to do all we can to support our communities.”
