An award-winning Hertfordshire construction software company is appealing for help in its drive to boost the morale of the “NHS heroes” working at Hertfordshire Community Services NHS Trust.

EasyBuild, developers of pioneering software to help address the operational needs of construction firms, is raising money to send gifts of thanks to the NHS Trust workers, committed to providing healthcare during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Borehamwood-based company, a member of the Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce, is working with fellow Chamber members to deliver ‘thank you’ gift bags each containing items including bath bombs, candles, patterned socks for men and other luxury products to the value of £20. To help fund the products, donations of between £10 and £100 are sought.

Carol Massay, Chief Executive Officer of EasyBuild said: “During a weekly Hertfordshire Chamber call, Sam Tappenden, Director of Strategy at Hertfordshire Community Services NHS Trust, highlighted their biggest challenge in the current climate is staff morale.

“He explained how difficult it was for the staff and their families during this difficult time. This really touched us, so we launched Project Pink Sparkle as a way to help let these NHS heroes know that everyone is supporting their hard work.”

The gifts bags will be jointly created by Mary from Pink Gift Store and Claire from Project Sparkle at Park Lane Jewellery. 

Together with Maxine Taylor, of Chasebridge Wealth Management and Donna Schultz, of Hertfordshire Chamber, Carol Massay will ensure the gift bags reach the right departments.

Carol added: “This is a fantastic opportunity to support the NHS in such a great way and whilst there are other fundraising activities out there, to have something like this will instantly help to put a smile on an NHS worker’s face. To let them know that the people of Hertfordshire are behind them would be absolutely fantastic.

“Our target is £1,500 but we are not quite there yet. We need your help! We’d like to say a big thank you to all those who have donated so far – this really will help to make a difference.”
