Kesteven Ladies deliver Easter treats to key workers at A&E department
A number of Kesteven Rugby Ladies players are working on the frontline of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Mindful of the significant physical, emotional and personal sacrifices local health workers and caring professionals are making on a daily basis, Kesteven Ladies rallied round in the pre-Easter lockdown to collect Easter eggs, hand-made PPE equipment and stunning home-baked cakes for the team and patients on Friday April 10.
Second-row Stacey Spafford of Stacey’s Cakery and hooker Ruth Holmes delivered them, socially distanced, on Good Friday to the A&E department, which Cheryl Carl, fellow Kesteven Ladies forward and second row, gratefully received along with her A&E teammates.
Ruth said: “We are a tight-knit team. We support each other off and on the pitch. Collecting and donating these small gifts is the least we can do for those fighting on the frontline of this horrible disease.
“We are so grateful to everyone at our local hospital for being there for us. No more so than in this current situation.”
Stacey added: “The donations were just a way of saying thank you to those on the front line for the amazing work they are doing.”
