De Vere, a collection of historic mansion house estates and distinctive contemporary hotels, has donated £560,000 to NHS Charities Together to help NHS staff, volunteers, and patients at the centre of the COVID-19 pandemic.
De Vere’s donation will help support NHS staff, volunteers, and patients in key areas including welfare and wellbeing, assistance for patients leaving hospital, and long-term mental health support for NHS workers.
Ellie Orton OBE, CEO of NHS Charities Together, said:
“This has taken a huge toll, and many staff have experienced genuine trauma. We are so proud to be able to provide them with the mental health support they so richly deserve and, together, support the long-term recovery of the NHS.”
De Vere’s properties are located across the UK from Surrey to the Cotswolds and set within country estates and parkland, where guests can discover hidden scenic lakes, sculptures, and breath-taking countryside views. Each property is on the doorstep of some of the country’s most beautiful landscapes, offering the opportunity to explore the great British outdoors.
