A local nursing home received an alternative Easter treat with a special delivery of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and an assortment of Easter eggs.
The delivery of PPE and chocolate, courtesy of Thermo Fisher Scientific, sparked delight in residents of Cramers Court Nursing Home in Belgooly, Kinsale.
Thermo Fisher Scientific, located in Currabinny, Carrigaline, provided the goods which were delivered with the assistance of the local community gardaí́.
Activities coordinator at Cramers Court Nursing Home, Teresa O'Donovan, said: “We are delighted with this incredibly kind gesture. Thermo Fisher Scientific rallying behind Cramers Court by providing essential PPE and Easter eggs was a tremendous show of community spirit and we thank them for it.
“Having this special delivery escorted by the Community Gardaí meant there was great excitement across the home, and we felt it was thoroughly deserving of a guard of honour by staff,” she said.
Thermo Fisher Scientific is one of many local companies who have rallied together to make generous donations and gestures in a bid to support frontline workers and to help those vulnerable to the virus.
