The resort has joined the UK-wide campaign ‘Operation Recuperation’ to offer NHS workers a free VIP overnight break with their loved ones to say thank you for their dedication and sacrifice in the fight against Covid-19.
“We are proud to join Operation Recuperation and support our healthcare heroes. It is just one way we can show our appreciation to the incredible NHS staff and say thank you for their extraordinary efforts as they risk their lives to fight the virus. We are looking forward to treating them to a well-deserved relaxing and luxurious break once we are able to reopen.” – Chris Eigelaar, Resort General Manager at The Belfry
Operation Recuperation began in March 2020 by Rachel Sherwood to give healthcare workers a light at the end of the Covid-19 tunnel. It has received pledges for complimentary stays from over 120 donors throughout the UK and overseas, benefitting 350 NHS workers with donations for stays across the UK from the Isles of Scilly to Scotland and overseas from Spain, India, and Barbados to Indonesia.
Rachel said: “We’re so grateful to The Belfry Hotel & Resort for this superb donation. It’s located in the heart of the country means it’s within a short drive of so many NHS staff who have suffered through the worst of the pandemic and they all deserve a break. Being able to gift 20 of them and their loved ones a stay in this luxurious resort will make such a difference.”
The NHS staff who will benefit from stays at The Belfry work at some of the hardest-hit hospitals in the area including Queen Elizabeth, Heartlands and Good Hope in Birmingham, Fairfield General in Bury, Manchester Royal Infirmary and John Radcliffe in Oxford.
The Belfry has a number of safety measures in place while still offering the same award-winning welcome and memorable experiences that guests have come to love and know. The Belfry’s ‘Our Pledge to You’ initiative showcases the resort’s commitment to meeting the highest standards cleanliness procedures and protocols across all areas of the resort to ensure a safe and secure environment for staff and guests.
