Highlighting local heroes
Healthcare Assistant, Ryanne Errington, thought of the idea to develop a calendar to raise money after participating in the viral ‘NHS dancing’ videos that have graced our social media channels in the wake of COVID-19. After seeing the positive response these videos had, Ryanne wanted to launch a fun calendar that would help to highlight the many key workers that work within Shropshire’s hospitals, whilst also raising money.
Ryanne connected with Reech Media Managing Director, Rob Hughes, to discuss participating in an advert within the calendar. With the tie to our local community, Reech wanted to help out as much as possible for this worthwhile cause and have provided a range of free design and web support services, including branding, design of the calendar and an e-commerce website to facilitate the ordering and payment of the calendars.
Heroes in action
Each month of the calendar features a selection of hospital workers, including doctors, nurses, cooks, cleaners and pharmaceutical staff, and each month is spelt out using letters that have been coloured by children within the hospitals.
On the project, Ryanne commented:
“Working on the front line I see just how much equipment is needed on a daily basis, especially PPE for our staff members. The COVIS-19 outbreak came around so suddenly and has put huge amounts of pressure on our NHS hospitals. Even if it’s a small amount, fundraising for our hospitals will slightly relieve that pressure by creating funds to buy the supplies that are urgently needed.”

Calendars are available to pre-order for just £10, and all monies raised from sales of the calendar go towards much-needed equipment and PPE for staff working in our hospitals.
