Santander International is showing its appreciation for the Isle of Man’s healthcare workers during Covid-19 with a healthy food gift.

The bank has donated over 300 fruit and vegetable boxes to be delivered to the Island’s community healthcare workers’ homes over the coming weeks.

Healthcare workers can order their free food care box through a dedicated link on the Robinson’s website, choosing a vegetable, fruit, or everyday grocery package.

James Geldart, Managing Director, Santander International Isle of Man Branch, said: “Everyone in the Island is incredibly grateful for the brilliant work all the health care workers are doing across the community during the Coronavirus pandemic. We wanted to thank them and take a little pressure off a busy week by giving them the convenience of a box of groceries delivered to their door.”

The care boxes include a range of everyday food items, fresh fruit, or vegetables and salad, featuring fresh local Manx produce where possible. After choosing their package, healthcare workers can select a home delivery slot, then log in to secure their order without payment.

Janna Horsthuis, Managing Director, Robinson’s, said: “Santander International’s kind donation will make a difference to the community health care workers and we are proud to work with Santander International and the Isle of Man government to help deliver fresh produce to these amazing people’s homes.”

During the first day of the programme Robinson’s delivered 67 boxes to the homes of Island health care workers.

Ros Lane, Service Manager in the Community Support Service said ‘Every day of every year, there are so many people throwing their heart and soul in to looking after others in our community. They don’t do it for the recognition. They do it out of their own passion for making a difference in people’s lives. That’s the care that my Support Workers and Team Leaders provide all the time. In these current times, their job is inevitably so much harder, yet they continue to do all that they can do for others. It really was a pleasure to be able to pass on Santander International’s generous gesture to these amazing people, and we are incredibly grateful.
