Roy Tuttle, Chairman of the Torbay Hospital League of Friends said "The event was superb and we are delighted to be able match the money raised by Torquay United fans doubling the amount to £1370. When it comes to Covid, we know NHS staff have had to look after patients in very difficult circumstances."
The funding gives a welcome boost to staff and patients on the frontline of Covid-19 in terms of wellbeing support.
Paul Norrish, Donations Manager said "We are grateful to the Gulls and the Torbay Hospital League of Friends for shining a light on the much needed appeal. The situation remains challenging, the Trust's workforce is responding heroically."
The Covid Appeal continues to support Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust until the point this pandemic is finished, when it will switch to focus on recovery.
