Percy’s Punnets fruit and vegetable stall open to all – Digital Health Technology News

The Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt (RJAH) Orthopaedic Hospital are ensuring staff, patients and visitors have access to 5-a-day, with the relaunch of the popular fruit and vegetable stall.

The healthy stall – dubbed as Percy’s Punnets which was voted for by staff – is ran by the League of Friends and stationed in the Main Entrance at the Oswestry-based hospital.

Percy’s Punnets is open from Monday – Friday, between 10am – 3pm with all proceeds going to the League of Friends. The fresh produce is provided by a local supplier.

Heather Thomas-Bache, Head of Fundraising, Volunteering and Communications, said: “We are delighted to have been able to facilitate the return of the fruit and vegetable stall. It is a great service for patients, staff and visitors.

“The contribution from sales towards the League of Friends helps us to support the hospital by purchasing equipment and fundraising towards future projects.”

As part of cost-of-living initiatives, the stall offers a 10% discount for staff.

This is one of many initiatives that the Trust has taken to support members of staff throughout the cost-of-living crisis, including heavily subsidised hot meals, free toast and porridge at breakfast and complimentary hot and cold drinks.

Stacey Keegan, Chief Executive, said: “It is great to see the return of the fruit and vegetable stall. Having access to fresh produce supports the NHS’s 5-a-day campaign and enables us to further support the health and wellbeing of our staff and patients.”
