Chipping in to help our health workers
WITH the backing of Boy Espresso Bar and the community, one resident has set up a tab to help keep health workers caffeinated during these busy times.
Anna Munroe said she had been trying to find a way to support Gladstone’s health community and keep them running while maintaining social distancing.
“I figured that coffee was a good way to go and they’re going to be working throughout this time of uncertainty,” Ms Munroe said.
The fund is for registered nurses, doctors and ambulance personnel to head down to Boy Espresso and claim coffee, with their professional ID.
Ms Munroe put a post on Gladstone Classifieds on Facebook announcing the fund, and has received a lot of support. Boy Espresso Bar also shared the post to its page.
“I’ve had heaps of people donate into the coffee fund as well and quite a lot of health workers are coming in to use it,” she said.
“That’s really exciting to know the community is supporting them and we should support them.”
She said it was important to support the people who were “going to be there for us when we need them”.
