A former NHS worker has decided to reopen her launderette, launching a new scheme especially for key workers during the coronavirus outbreak.
Beverley East, owner of the Laundry Goddess in Sudbury, has launched a pay it forward service for all front-line staff and key workers after shutting down three weeks ago.
Having previously worked as a NHS addiction counsellor and safeguarding officer, Ms East knows the effect of working long shifts and wants to help by offering half-price service washes and ironing.
Ms East said: “Hopefully I can give you back some of your valuable time to either rest, have some downtime or spend time with your family. This is just a small way to thank you for all you are doing.”
Members of the public can ‘donate’ a wash or ironing service to a key worker of their choice. The half-price scheme ends on May 31.
