Students do their bit to boost morale at Treliske Hospital

Front-line NHS workers at the Royal Cornwall Hospital have had a boost from local students.

In the last two weeks, students across all year groups at Camborne School made cards with personalised messages inside, which were then collected and delivered to staff at Treliske.

Assistant principal Rachel Trevarthen said: “In a time of national crisis, we believe it’s vital to come together to support each other.

"Our NHS workers are absolutely incredible, selfless and inspiring individuals and as a school, we wanted to show our continued gratitude and make them smile."

"It might only be a small gesture, but our cards go a long way in showing how much our students care about our NHS heroes and the amazing work they do every day.”

While closed due to the lockdown, Camborne Science and International Academy has also recently donated 70 pairs of safety goggles and over 500 protective gloves to support both Veor and Trevithick Surgeries in Camborne.

“The community efforts here in Cornwall are just staggering," said Rachel.

"People are pulling together and doing all they can to support the global fight against coronavirus.

"We’re all very aware of the fact that front-line workers are putting the community before themselves every time they go into work, working long hours in what must be very stressful conditions.

"Our students wanted to say thank you and the messages they’ve written inside the cards are truly heartwarming.”

Angie Moyle, Patient Flow Coordinator at Treliske, who collected the cards, gave half to Grenville Ward and the other half to Wheal Prosper, Treliske’s isolation ward.

“We were told that all the cards were greatly received, and they enjoyed seeing all the lovely colour designs and reading the messages!” said Mrs Trevarthen.

"We are very proud to be part of the county-wide effort to support our local health workers” said Principal at CSIA, Mr Ian Kenworthy.

“The kindness and generosity shown within our school community is just fantastic at a time when the whole county is forming a united front to help fight COVID-19.”
