What can I do for the NHS? Most importantly, for the people (& families) that work for the NHS? Here is one tiny thing that I - a solo-worker can do.
I admire those that work for our nations biggest employer. Their work is life and death - not just those on the front line, the folks that do the admin, the dentists that fix our teeth, the cleaners that keep our surgeries and hospitals as clean as they can be, the drivers that deliver the meds. If you work for the NHS, I salute you.
I’ve been thinking for a long time about what I might be able to bring to them. I see the occasional pub offering a 10% discount, clothing stores that subtly offer monies off. It’s a difficult area as of course, the NHS is not a charity and am sure it’s employees would not look favourably upon being treated as so.
So my offering to said workers needs to be in celebration. A token for the low pay they accept, the long hours and the sometimes difficult work they carry out, not to mention the stress levels.
Sadly I can’t bring them a luxurious foot massage each, but I can offer them a heavily discounted portrait of their dog, or to give as a gift for those they love.
So, herewith I’m introducing a hefty 50% off all my dog painting prices to those that are registered workers of The NHS. The only caveat to this is that I’ll need to book these portraits in as and when I can, they may need to wait a little longer, but not much.
I’ll advise lead times of course during the booking process.
I’m delighted to have settled on this and have made my decision.
Am off now to plaster it all over my website.
Public Sector Teachers, I haven’t forgotten you. More about this coming soon
Best wishes, Samantha
