If the coronavirus pandemic has taught us anything, it’s the importance of community and kindness. CPI EuroMix has been doing its bit by recently donating 15 DAB digital radios to patients on Stoke ward at Wycombe Hospital, Buckinghamshire.

For many in-patients, the prospect of daily visits from their loved ones is what gets them through each day. However, as the pandemic has caused all healthcare sites to crack down on health and safety to minimise viral spread, routine visitations have had to be side-lined.  

Terry Smith, CPI EuroMix’s plant manager at Beaconsfield has connections at Wycombe Hospital. With the current restrictions preventing hospital visits, many patients spend all day on their own with no company or communications beyond the hospital’s four walls. CPI EuroMix was asked if it could help in some way.

CPI EuroMix personally delivered its donation of 15 DAB radios to the ward’s sister, Kirsty. The radios will bring a piece of home to patients’ beds and enable them to feel better connected with the outside world.

Stuart Russell, Contracts Manager at CPI EuroMix said: “It was really important for us to be involved in some way and put a smile on hospital patients’ faces. It must be such an isolating time staying at hospital right now, so knowing we’ve made a difference to someone’s day is truly heart-warming.”
