Response officers from Barnsley have rallied round to provide much needed hand creams to frontline colleagues at Pinderfields Hospital in Wakefield.

The hand creams were provided by officers on our E group rota from Wombwell Police Station to nurses working in the Intensive Care Unit, treating patients with Covid-19.

PC Charlotte Vasilenko co-ordinated the collection of creams after hearing that the extensive cleaning, sanitising and wearing of gloves was causing nurses’ hands to split and crack.

The collection was delivered to staff yesterday (17 May) with a card that read: “A small gesture of help for your helping hands. From one blue team to another, thank you for all you are doing!”

Sergeant Paul Aston added: “The nurses were really grateful for our support and were quite emotional to know that it had come from the cops on our little team, supporting each other on the frontline.”
