Natasha Fellows works at The Premier Inn in Bridlington but is currently not able to work and is at home looking after her two-year-old son.

She wanted to do something for NHS staff and as she also sells The Body Shop products Natasha decided to try and send some care packages.

She said: "Body Shop has donated creams and things to larger hospitals but I wanted to do something locally.

"It would be nice to get [the staff] a bit of a treat, even just a hand cream, I can't imagine how sore their hands must be.

"I just felt like it would be something nice to do."

Natasha is aiming to raise £150 to buy the products which will be sent straight to the fundraising department at the hospital who will give them out to staff members.

She is putting any commission she usually would have made to buy extra products.

"I will put an order through for creams, soap and shower gels which will be helpful and also things that will let frontline workers pamper themselves after a long shift.

"I just really want to help all the key workers, even a small donation from someone can help."

Earlier this month The Body Shop announced it was donating 25,000 units of soap and 25,000 hemp hand moisturisers to the staff at the Nightingale Hospital at London's ExCel centre.

They will also be donating a further 25,000 products to the Nightingale hospitals being set up in Birmingham, Manchester and Glasgow.
