Veterans support Guy's and St Thomas'
A charity for veterans has been supporting Guy’s and St Thomas’ during the COVID-19 outbreak.
Team Rubicon UK’s volunteers helped support the running of the Trust’s emergency food supplies service. It provides essential household items and fresh food for staff struggling to get to the supermarket and is funded by Guy’s and St Thomas’ Charity.
Team Rubicon UK mobilises veterans and volunteers to serve communities at home and abroad. Georgina Charlton, operational lead for the emergency food supplies shop, says: “The volunteers used their military expertise to support us expand the service across our hospital and community sites so that all of our staff could benefit. The service has been a huge success and has been used by our staff more than 14,000 times.”
