In light of the current issues we are collectively facing Foundation DB has decided to put our regular charity work on hold in order to support our NHS Staff during this time. We have made an early payment to our regular charities so they have still received all the money raised so far this year. We will now be starting from scratch and all money collected during the corona pandemic will be spent on food and toiletry boxes for NHS staff at Russell’s Hall hospital. They currently have over 3,000 staff with 350 working on fighting the virus.
Stay Home. Protect the NHS. Save Lives.
