Last May, we launched via e-mail our Leonard Hospital appeal in response to the devastating COVID wave in India. We had all seen many heart-breaking images and heard dreadful reports in the media of the distressing situation, and in particular, that hospitals were being overwhelmed. The appeal was launched to help the hospital with its immediate and ongoing needs.
Your generous response was absolutely amazing. In just two weeks, £21,770.12 including Gift Aid had been raised. We were stunned and humbled by this – thank you. A similar appeal was launched by St Nicolas Church in Newbury, which meant that we have been able to send a total of £41,013.04 to help Leonard Hospital.
The funds have been well used:
Jacqueline’s response shows their immense gratitude:
“With folded hands we at Leonard Hospital, again and again, express our overwhelming THANK YOU for all your relentless effort to make such a huge amount to be spent for the wellbeing of COVID patients”;
“With all the testing times and challenging situations, the help and support of the Miriam Dean Fund is incredible and we are ever thankful to you for reaching out to us in amazing ways with your compassionate and kind hearts.”
