Fairy Bricks donates Lego units to youngsters of NHS staff
fairy brick, a charity that donates LEGO – a winner of the World Branding Awards – Sets for children's hospices and hospitals, has announced plans to donate more than 30,000 LEGO sets for children from NHS workers.
The donations go to the dedicated NHS Hospital Trusts staff across the UK Guy and St Thomas NHS Foundation Trust in London. Fairy Bricks will help hospital trusts distribute LEGO sets to employees, in accordance with the important social distance and health and safety guidelines that hospitals have introduced.
The donations will help children find moments of playful joy with their families, while their dedicated parents reconcile childcare and their own well-being while working around the clock to protect the nation.
Kevin Gascoigne, CEO of Fairy Bricks, commented: “We are really grateful for everything our NHS heroes do to protect us. We know that fighting COVID-19 keeps many of them away from their families and children. This is a very small gesture that we hope will give families a smile in a very difficult time. "
Fairy Bricks is a long-time partner of the LEGO Group, which, together with other donors to the charity, provides sets to improve the lives of sick children. Every year Fairy Bricks donates more than 40,000 LEGO sets to hospitals in the UK and internationally.
Kevin said: "Because of COVID-19, we were unable to donate sets to hospitals and facilities as usual. For this reason, thanks to a generous donation from the LEGO Group, we have sets for children of our NHS staff that we hope to distribute in the coming weeks . "
In addition to the support provided by the LEGO Group Fairy Bricks, the company donates more than £ 200,000 to UK children's organizations to help people in our local communities in these unprecedented times.
These UK donations are part of the LEGO Group's global commitment to support families affected by COVID-19. The LEGO Foundation donates $ 50 million to NGOs and charities around the world to ensure that children have access to essential goods and can develop through learning. The LEGO Group also donates over 500,000 sets to needy children around the world.
