The club has been ongoing supporters of the Trust’s charity, ELHT&Me, and this year they wanted to support our fantastic NHS staff with a chocolate treat.

The 700 selection boxes will be given out to staff to show appreciation for all their hard-work over the past year.

Denise Gee, Fundraising manager for ELHT&Me was delighted with the donation.

She said: “We are delighted to receive the extremely kind support from our local Rotary team. On behalf of the Burnley General Hospital staff we would like to say a massive thank you.”

Jim Hepburn and Alan Clifford, both members of the Rotary club, were able to safely deliver the selection boxes in person to the hospital this week.

Jim said: “We hope these selection boxes bring a smile, and are a thank you for recognition of all the hard and caring work that goes into dealing with COVID-19, which has brought unprecedented demands on the NHS.”
