Tate & Lyle Sugars donate to support local health workers
Tate & Lyle Sugars have kindly gifted £25,000 to our emergency COVID-19 appeal to support the NHS staff who are working close to their refineries.

Tate & Lyle Sugars have been making sugar and syrup in London for over 140 years and have a long history of supporting the local community.  When their local NHS hospitals were impacted by COVID-19, Tate & Lyle Sugars felt it was important to support the workers by donating to our emergency appeal.

This donation will be used to support staff in our hospitals, through wellbeing initiatives like relaxation hubs and practical items like e-bikes for staff to get to and from work safely.

On top of this, Tate & Lyle Sugars also donated sugar sachets to the NHS Nightingale Hospital to ensure that NHS workers could have a sweet cup of tea when they took a break.

Hamera Elahi, a Healthcare Play Specialist at the Children’s Rainbow Centre at Newham Hospital regularly bakes cakes for her team. 

She says: “These are troubling and stressful times and everybody at Newham Hospital is working so hard. My cakes always go down well so I thought baking was the perfect way to say thank you to my lovely colleagues.

“Thank you so much to the sugar workers at Tate and Lyle for making sure that bakers like me can keep our cakes coming! We are so grateful for their donation to our charity too, which will help colleagues across East London through this crisis.”

Eager to support their local community, Tate & Lyle employees are working extra shifts at the refinery as the demand for sugar and syrup has increased as people turn to baking to keep themselves busy during lockdown. 

Gerald Mason, Senior Vice President of Tate & Lyle Sugars says: “Our employees in our two factories in East London are working flat out to keep the nation fed, and they know they can rely on their local hospital. This money is going towards making the lives of the NHS workers there a little better while they are working such long and tough hours away from home.”

Thank you Tate & Lyle Sugars!
