Roomzzz aparthotels has donated an initial 2,000 overnight stays to key workers from the NHS in a bid to support their efforts during the COVID-19 outbreak, in a gesture worth quarter of a million pounds. With healthcare professionals on the front-line of the fight to control the outbreak, many workers are being asked to locate themselves in specific areas or isolate themselves from family, to ensure they are able to focus full attention and efforts on tackling this pandemic.
Roomzzz, owned and operated by The Parklane Group, has allocated a number of apartments at each of its locations across the UK for NHS staff and their sole use. The offer has already been fully taken-up at the brand’s Burley Road property in Leeds, which is just a few minutes’ walk from Leeds General Infirmary and they want to extend this offer nationwide.
Naveen Ahmed, Founder of The Parklane Group, said: “In these unprecedented times, we want to do what we can to support our brilliant NHS, who are on the front line of the fight against this outbreak and coping with unbelievable situations in a remarkably professional and brave manner. The donation of these facilities equates to a substantial charitable contribution already totalling £250,000, which is a mark of how we operate as a business.
“Our long-established work through The Parklane Foundation has proven the Group’s ongoing commitment to supporting the wider community in times of need. If we as a business can help in any way, then we stand ready to support the cause.”
Roomzzz occupies sites in ten core locations throughout the UK, including London, Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle, York, Chester and Nottingham.
