“Dressing up each day I've seen first hand the hugely positive effect it can have so I hope to see this campaign fancydress4nhs take off and the nation gets behind it by dressing up and spreading that positivity across the whole United Kingdom to show the Frontline NHS & care workers just how much they're appreciated.” Jon Matson - the postman who's been featured all over the news said...
“I'm extremely proud to support "fancy dress for the NHS"! My mother and father have both dedicated their lives working for the NHS my mother a sister nurse and my father a theatre technician for over 90 years between them helping sick people get better, giving family support and literally saving lives! We are all so proud of our front line workers, they are life’s heroes! What a great way to celebrate and support the NHS frontline workers with this incredible charity.” Jethro 'ALONESTAR' Sheeran (Ed Sheeran's cousin)
“Donations to the RCN Foundation COVID-19 Support Fund through the Fancy Dress 4 HNS initiative will make a real difference to the many frontline health and social care workers who are making an invaluable contribution at the very forefront of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The collective show of support and appreciation for the nursing community through Fancy Dress 4 NHS is testament to their tireless efforts in keeping families and communities safe during these most difficult times.
We are very grateful for the support of the Fund, which will not only help those individuals who may be experiencing personal hardship as a result of COVID-19 but will also help to address some of the psychological implications associated with working on the frontline at this difficult time.” Deepa Korea, RCN Foundation Director, RCN Foundation
“The grant from the RCN Foundation has made an unimaginable difference, both financially and emotionally at this difficult time. It has enabled me to pay my bills and continue to self-isolate for several more weeks, which has been such a relief to me and my family, given my ongoing underlying health issues. I’m so grateful for the support.” Rachel (Healthcare Assistant)
