ingenie’s acts of kindness for our key worker heroes



Calling all NHS workers, nurses, doctors, delivery drivers, teachers, police officers, accountants, vets, bus drivers, supermarket staff, nursery nurses, pharmacists, charity workers... (inhales deeply)

We want to say how grateful we are for the INCREDIBLE work you're doing to keep our country running during the Coronavirus pandemic. You really are our heroes.

A lot of our drivers work in key worker jobs keeping the country safe, cared for, well fed and active, and while we can't personally thank everyone who's working during lockdown, we can show our appreciation with some acts of kindness.

As well as going through our huge list of ingenie drivers who are working in essential roles at the moment, we also reached out on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to ask our social community to nominate someone they know who is going above and beyond for others during this challenging time.

My partner Matt who’s a senior nurse in a nursing home. He’s taken on extra shifts and has also been working nights when he wouldn’t usually have to. He’s found it tough especially having to wear PPE on a continuous basis and having some pretty bad days than he usually would. He’s made all our family and friends proud. ❤️

I received a lovely gift off you guys for being a key worker! I work in a nursery caring for the children who's parents are working hard as key workers - some frontline for the NHS. I feel nursery workers aren't getting the credit they deserve so this made me very happy receiving this gift. Thank you so much ❤️ #actsofkindness

Thank you, thank you and thank you again. We hope our heroic key workers enjoy their surprise gifts and hopefully get to put their feet up at the end of a busy day. You deserve it - oh and if we haven't said it enough - thank you.
