It’s great to see how Chamber membership is working to link up members even in these strangest of times
Ricardo and Heaton House are both members of the Worthing and Adur Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber shared Ricardo’s press release launching face shield production as part of their member to member mutual support.
Previously Heaton House had contacted the Chamber regarding the issues accessing PPE equipment for the care home. When the press release arrived in the Chamber inbox the Chamber made the connection.
Following a discussion with Ricardo and an email introduction to Ricardo and Heaton House, within two days, a collection of 10 face shields was arranged from Ricardo’s Shoreham Technical Centre. So that the home’s highly dedicated staff can better protected.
Sally Neil-Smith, the owner/manager of the home said “It’s great to be supported by one of our larger local businesses with a strong community focus. It wasn’t a matter of money, we just can’t get these things. Many thanks to Ricardo for helping out”
Andrew Swayne, Ricardo’s Group Risk Manager and Chair of Adur and Worthing Business Partnership said “We are really pleased to assist Heaton House and many of the care settings in the area – it’s a need we could help with and have done our best to help. Many colleagues contributed to this – thanks to all of them”
Tracie Davey, Operations Manager, Worthing and Adur Chamber commented “As a local Chamber we are always here to support and connect our members and even more so through these unprecedented times. We were thrilled to have played our part in this connection which provided a product which has been produced locally to a care home in desperate need. Let’s all continue to support each other as a local business community. #togetherbusinessisstronger.www.worthingandadurchamber.co.uk
