Hampers for Heroes
Hampers for Heroes (H4H) is a not for profit, Community Interest Company (C.I.C) ignited by COVID-19. We send care packages to show our love and gratitude to healthcare workers, carers, teachers and other frontline and key workers in need. The hamper is a metaphor for ‘care, light and love’; recognising the sacrifice others have made to keep our society safe. We have reached over 40,000 individuals so far.
It has been widely communicated in the media that the pandemic has had significant impacts on the mental health of NHS and keyworkers, including teachers. The importance of providing emotional support to them during the challenging times and into the future has also been highlighted.
