The initiative was undertaken to mark International Nurses Day
Italian wine bar business, Veeno, has given away almost £50,000 worth of wine and vouchers to NHS workers.
The company marked International Nurses Day last week by inviting NHS staff to sign up for the chance to win a bottle of wine. More than 3,000 workers did so with Veeno giving a bottle of wine to the first 500 that signed up. But the company also decided to thank all the NHS workers that signed up and didn’t win a bottle by offering them a voucher to the value of £15 to spend on its online store or in a Veeno outlet when they reopen.
Owner and director Rodrigue Trouillet, who bought the company out of administration in March 2019 having joined the business as a partner in 2018, told Propel: “We received many emails thanking us for this initiative but we wanted to do something modest to recognise everything they are doing.”
