Donor Story 2

Following on from our first Donor Story on Monday, we have Hugh Mcalinden's story:

"I heard about Student MedAID through a friend in the NHS and thought what a wonderful opportunity to have supplies used rather than go to waste. In my case crutches and orthopaedic boots I had paid for privately could benefit someone in real need rather than go landfill. If everyone passes on this same tip then collectively we can make a real difference."

Again, we'd like to say a MASSIVE thank you to all of our donors and volunteers who make all of our work possible. 🙏

We are striving to increase sustainability in healthcare together, even small donations of equipment makes a difference! We will be posting about our volunteering group soon if you are eager to collect equipment for us!
