My name is Antoaneta, the CEO of FastKlean. Welcome back to our blog.
Today I want to talk about my admiration for the many people that work for the NHS – the doctors, nurses, paramedics, porters and cleaners.
There is a saying that many of you will know – “When the going gets tough, the tough get going”
These people are the epitome of tough. They really are risking their lives to look after and care for the nation, most of whom are complete strangers to them. They do this without moaning and groaning and simply just get on with their job. Most will be away from the families, staying in places close to their hospital. Just working and sleeping, if they can, each day.
It is great we step out of our homes on a Thursday at 8pm and clap to show we appreciate their efforts. It is wonderful that many of us also put blue lights in our windows to show we are remembering them.
However, I wanted to do something just a little more, just a small personal touch. So I decided to team up with Dayana, Managing Director of Fast Online Marketing Experts and my business partners, Eco Bravo.
We drove all the way from North London to mid Kent to visit the nurses at Tonbridge Hospital. We took with us many dozens of coffee cups, so each nurse had their own personal one and did not have to share. We also took hundreds of tea bags so they could enjoy a cuppa every now and then. We brought them numerous eco-friendly cleaning products so they could keep the individual environments sterile and clean.
To see their delight and appreciation for this tiny gesture deeply humbled me. In fact, I don’t mind sharing, that it even made me shed a tear or two.
It really is great that so many of us are remembering the many people that work for the NHS with similar gestures. Each now know just how much their work is appreciated and valued. But what happens when this crisis is over, and it will be over one day.
Do we all get back to normal life and then forget their courage and bravery? Or do we as a nation think of way to say “Thank You” for a long period of time. I have some ideas but would welcome any thoughts you may have.
As always, if you found this video useful and thought-provoking, then please like it on Social Media and share it with your friends. And, if you have any questions, ideas or experiences, please let me know in the comment section – I always love hearing from you!
