Nurses on E3 Ward at Queen Alexandra Hospital had been looking to raise £250 for lockers in which to keep their belongings.

The need for somewhere to store clean clothes to change into has become even greater since the coronavirus crisis began to grip the nation.

The nurses on the E3 Ward had started to raise their own funds but have had to put their efforts on hold as the pandemic has escalated.

Emma Fowles, whose friend Gail O’Donnell is a nurse at the hospital, has started up a GoFundMe page to help the staff reach their £250 target.

Emma said: ‘Before social distancing became a big part of our lives the nurses on E3 ward at QA hospital were having cake sales and other ventures to raise money for lockers to keep their belongings safe while at work saving lives.

‘I have been told they need them now more than ever as they have to get changed at work. So I am asking the power of the public to raise the money for them.’
