As soon as word started to spread about a virus called COVID-19 and the impact it was having on the NHS, we started to think about how we as a business could give back and help the incredible teams working tirelessly during the pandemic.
We bounced ideas back and forth as a team and, following a conversation with an NHS surgeon, settled on the idea of donating styles from our Dune Easy range. Not only are they easy to pull on and wipe clean, they also benefit from enhanced flexibility and luxury cushioning - the ideal combination for the staff working on the wards and in theatre.
Fast forward a few days and a lorry containing 1000 pairs of our Easy shoes was delivered to Evelina London, Guy's and St Thomas' hospital. Our hope is that these will bring comfort to their feet during and after their long shifts on the ward.
It is our absolute pleasure and indeed our duty to support our fabulous NHS during these challenging times. We hope that our small token of support will go some way at least to helping the incredible people on the front lines and we will continue to look for other ways we can get involved to show our thanks.
